Eight people were killed in a late-night shooting at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis. Police say the shooter killed himself.

In Chicago, bodycam video appears to show that a 13-year-old boy dropped his gun and had his hands up when a police officer shot and killed him.

Another night of protests in a Minneapolis suburb, where Daunte Wright’s family demanded more severe charges against the white former police officer who fatally shot him.

Also this morning:

  • Prince Philip apologized for “lame” speech in letter to Nixon 
  • Chauvin skips testifying as defense wraps up in Floyd trial
