18-year-old Darnella Frazier, who shook the world by filming and uploading the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis last May, has once again been forced to endure tragedy after an event involving her city's police department.

This time, it hit even closer to home.

According to a Facebook post made by Frazier, her uncle was killed in a car accident involving the Minneapolis Police Department.

As her post made clear, Frazier simply could not believe the tragedy that struck her and her family.

"I couldn't accept what I was hearing and still can't . Some things just take time to process. I'm still in shock and it haven't fully hit me yet,I broke down in tears😞I was hoping it was a dream...but it's not and this is reality."
"Minneapolis police has cost my whole family a big loss...today has been a day full of heartbreak and sadness😔. We went to the spot he was killed at and put beautiful flowers and candles, but even thats not enough to bring him back."

Towards the end of the post, Frazier's raw emotions of anger and sadness spilled out.

"WHY ARE YOU DOING A HIGH SPEED CHASE ON A RESIDENTIAL RODE??? 😩😩you took an innocent life trying to catch someone else... I don't know how to feel..."
"I was just with you at the beach ....if I would've known that would be my last time seeing you, I would've hugged you so much longer, told you I love you way harder....I love you so much.... please pray for my family 🙏🏽😪His name is Leneal Lamont Frazier. Uncle I love you💕it's just hard for me to accept I won't see you again."

According to MPR news, Leneal Lamont Frazier was killed when a Minneapolis Police Department squad car struck his vehicle while pursuing a robbery suspect driving another car.

Frazier sustained critical injuries and died in North Memorial Health Hospital shortly after.

The driver of the police vehicle which struck Frazier, Officer Brian Cummings, sustained "non-life-threatening" injuries in the crash. MPR noted Cummings has been the subject of 13 investigations since 2008.

In a followup post on Facebook, Darnella Frazier clarified her previous post did not accuse the police of killing her uncle intentionally.

Nonetheless, she felt they were at fault for the lethal accident.

"I honestly don't even know the race of the cop. I just know it was a police officer behind the wheel. Before the media goes putting out a false narrative, I'll control my own narrative."
"I also never said the suspect held zero responsibility, but the police made a bad decision by doing a high speed chase on a residential road. That bad decision cost my uncle his life."

People who saw Frazier's post were outraged right along with her.

When news of the tragedy made its way to Twitter, the response was similar.



The Minnesota State Police are investigating the incident. According to Minneapolis Police Department policy, police body cameras turn on as soon as a squad car's lights or sirens are turned on.

Some time will need to pass before answers come out.
