Shocking video has emerged showing a white Minneapolis police officer pinning a black man to the ground with his knees moments before he loses consciousness and dies. 

The disturbing footage was taken by a bystander in south Minneapolis on Monday, and has now sparked an FBI investigation into the man’s death.  

The Minneapolis Police Department confirmed the man died in a statement later that night, saying officers had responded to a ‘forgery in progress.’ 

Police found the man, believed to be in his 40s, matching the suspect’s description in his car. 

‘He was ordered to step from his car. After he got out, he physically resisted officers,’ police spokesman John Elder said in a statement. 

‘Officers were able to get the suspect into handcuffs and noted he appeared to be suffering medical distress.’
