Police used tear gas, rubber bullets and pepper spray as the protests sparked by the killing of George Floyd continued nationwide into early Sunday.
The big picture: Police responded over the weekend with force, in cities ranging from Salt Lake City to Atlanta to Des Moines, Houston to Detroit, Milwaukee to Washington, D.C., Denver and Louisville. Large crowds gathered in Minneapolis on Saturday for the fifth day in a row.
Multiple cities imposed curfews for Saturday night as police continue to try to break up crowds.
Civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) was among the leaders to urge protesters to demonstrate peacefully amid reports of looting and the burning of buildings in some places. "Be constructive, not destructive," Lewis said.
What's new: Steven Nelson Lopez was charged with murder and wanton endangerment following the death of 27-year-old photographer Tyler Charles Gerth, per AP, which reports authorities saying the suspect "had taken part in demonstrations but was disruptive and had been asked by other protesters to leave."

And Trump's younger brother, Robert, tried and failed to block the publication of "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man."
