UPDATE 5/31/20 5:07 p.m.: A citywide curfew was in place for a second night, from 10:00 p.m. Sunday until 6:00 a.m. Monday.

The fire at the four-story Residences at Topiary Park burned for hours, causing part of the roof and several floors to collapse. An attempt was made to set fire to another apartment building under construction next door.

Earlier Saturday, Governor Mike DeWine said he was calling out the Ohio National Guard and also asking the highway patrol to help help enforce laws in Columbus as Mayor Andrew Ginther and Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson both announced 10:00 p.m. curfews following damage to businesses amid protests over Floyd's death in Minneapolis.

Chauvin and three other officers who were involved in the incident, including two who helped to hold Floyd down, were fired earlier this week.

In a video of his arrest, posted by Eleven Warriors, Towns is heard saying "Say your name!" to the crowd of protesters who responded by saying "George Floyd!"

"They want to focus attention on the tragic death of George Floyd and they want to focus attention on other injustices". DeWine says the vast majority of protesters wanted "simply to be heard" but their voices "are sadly being drowned out by a smaller group of violent individuals". Acts of violence will not be accepted nor tolerated. This violence must stop. DeWine says OH has an obligation to do more to prevent this kind of injustice in the future. I want to assure our residents we are making real change and are committed to confronting racism where we see it.

The Columbus Dispatch reported that U.S. Rep Joyce Beatty, Franklin County Commissioner Kevin Boyce and Shannon Hardin, president of the Columbus City Council, were among those pepper-sprayed at a protest Saturday morning. Protests previously resulted in injured police officers and broken windows at the statehouse.

At a joint news conference with DeWine and Ginther, Quinlan said those responsible for destruction of property were committing felonies and called for a halt to the violence.

In Dayton, police said Saturday in a Twitter post that rocks and bottles were thrown at officers during a protest Saturday, and one officer was injured.

But Council President Hardin says they were at the peaceful protest and a few people got out of hand. "I learned pepper spray is not one direction". None of the elected officials was seriously hurt. Hardin issued an official statement says he's seen instances of police violence, and calling for several police reforms, including creation of a citizen review board and implementation of a series of recommendations issued previous year in the Matrix Report. "And finally, Columbus needs to quickly move forward to implement the Community Safety Advisory Commission's recommendations", Hardin said.

Chiefs will no longer hold their 2020 training camp in St. Joseph
No coaches nor players other than those undergoing medical treatment and rehabilitation have been allowed in those facilities. For the Dallas Cowboys, this means canceling their trip to Oxnard, California, where they've hosted training camp for years.


"We have all seen images that cause us to question whether our police officers are responding as expected".

Keith Ferrell, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Capital City Lodge No. 9 accused Ginther of tying the hands of officers with his comments, calling them "unfair and wrong".

But many demonstrations sank into chaos as night fell: Cars and businesses were torched.

DeWine says with this issue and other issues like racial health disparity, there can be several barriers blocking people to access and opportunity.
