New York City has been grounded. Amid the ongoing nationwide protests sparked by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that New York City will be under curfew for the remainder of the week.

Initially set for 11:00 p.m. ET, de Blasio has bumped the curfew to 8:00 p.m. ET.

The curfew comes as protests have become more violent and the looting has amplified throughout the city.

"We're going to have a tough few days," de Blasio said. "We will find a way through."

The George Floyd protests have been calling out police brutality and are urging people to come together in a sign of solidarity. Unfortunately, the cause has been hijacked due to the widespread violence which has included multiple buildings and police vehicles being set on fire.

Floyd was killed after a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on the back of his neck for nearly 8 minutes while Floyd pleaded for air. The ex-officer, Derek Chauvin, has been arrested for third-degree murder. The three other officers involved - Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao - have been fired by the Minneapolis Police Department and remain under investigation.
