Darnella Frazier’s Uncle Killed by Officer Pursuing Suspect in High-Speed Chase 

HeadlineJul 08, 2021

In Minneapolis, Darnella Frazier — the teenager whose recording of George Floyd’s murder was seen around the world — says her uncle was struck and killed by a police car during a car chase. Her uncle, 40-year-old Leneal Lamont Frazier, was not involved in the chase. Darnella Frazier said of the tragedy, “Another Black man lost his life in the hands of the police! … [T]oday has been a day full of heartbreak and sadness. … [T]he police made a bad decision by doing a high speed chase on a residential road. That bad decision cost my uncle his life.”
