The protests have come after former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was seen placing his knee on Floyd's neck as Floyd cried he couldn't breathe. He later died.

In a statement, Fashion Fair said:

Out of an abundance of caution, and with the safety of our shoppers and retailers in mind, Fashion Fair is closed today. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Fresno police arrested three protesters who vandalized a Les Schwab Tire Center in central Fresno Saturday night.
