At rallies across the country, some protesters also held signs calling for justice for Tony McDade — a Black transgender man shot and killed by Florida police last week. Police say they shot the 38-year-old after they suspected he was involved in a stabbing, and alleged he had a gun. Hours before his killing, Tony McDade posted a video on social media saying he’d been attacked by a group of men and was targeted because he was a Black trans man. McDade’s was at least the third fatal police shooting in Tallahassee in two months.
