Linda Tirado dying fter being shot in 2020

A journalist who was shot by Minneapolis police while covering 2020 protests over the death of George Floyd is dying of her injuries.

Freelance photojournalist Linda Tirado, 42, entered hospice care in Tennessee earlier this week, the National Press Club announced in a statement.

The organization said it is sending "our love and admiration" to Tirado, as well as funding to support the costs of her care. President Emily Wilkins is "in contact with Linda and working on a way to honor her legacy," it added.

Tirado was 38 in May 2020 when she drove from Nashville, Tenn., to Minneapolis to cover the unrest unfolding after the murder of George Floyd. He died when a white Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck for more than nine minutes. The city became an epicenter of widespread demonstrations against racial injustice and police brutality.
