An unarmed Black man Daniel Prude has been killed in New York State after he was hooded by police.

According to BBC, Prude was held face down to the road for two minutes, body camera footage shows.

It was also confirmed that Prude, who was suffering from mental health issues when police restrained him in March, died in hospital a week later.

So far, this development has only now been made public by his family, who held a news conference.

Although, it was also revealed that Prude’s death took place two months before the killing of George Floyd sparked global outrage.

Mr Floyd died in May after a white policeman knelt on his neck for nearly eight minutes.

Apart from George Floyds protest, tensions have risen again in recent weeks after black man Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back and paralysed during an arrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on 23 August, sparking large protests in the city that have turned violent.
