Demonstrators in Downtown Brooklyn on the third day of protests in New York City sparked by the death George Floyd. In Brooklyn, NY on Sunday May 31, 2020.

(AP) — One man was the beloved owner of a Louisville barbecue restaurant who made sure to provide free meals to officers. Another was a man known as "Mr. Indianapolis," a former star football player. Yet another was a federal officer working security during a protest.

They are among the people who have been killed as protests roiled American cities in the week since 46-year-old George Floyd died when a white officer jammed his knee into the back of the black man's neck.
