A mural dedicated to George Floyd was decimated by a bolt of lightning in Toledo, Ohio, witnesses say.

The Doppler Radar did show a lightning strike hit the same block as the George Floyd mural, confirming witnesses' accounts.

The mural was reduced to a pile of bricks following the strike.

Many activists across the country have built shrines for George Floyd, who died in Police custody last year before sparking a wave of protests and riots.

Another mural for Floyd instructed special rules for white people, as reported earlier this year.

The sign at the square reads:

“A Sacred Space for Community, Public Grief, and Protest.”
