Transcript for George Floyd’s brother calls for peace after protests
Meantime, in Minneapolis tonight, the brother of George Floyd with an emotional plea, saying stop the violence. What the family is asking for instead. Alex Perez tonight from Minneapolis. Reporter: Tonight, with a nation on the brink looking on, George Floyd's grief-stricken younger brother Terrance coming to the site of the tragedy. His knees buckling as he approaches the makeshift memorial. Then the anguish on the spot where his brother took his last breath. Then dropping to the street, tearfully speaking to him. I need you and pops to watch over me. I know you'll be happy. That's right. That's right. I know what you want. Reporter: Terrance turning to those around him for strength, then passionately addressing the crowd, demanding the violence stop. I understand y'all upset, but like it was already said, I doubt y'all are half as upset as I am. So if I'm not over here wilding out, if I'm not over here blowing up stuff, if I'm not over here messing up my community, what are y'all doing? What are y'all doing? Y'all doing nothing, because that's not going to bring my brother back at all. My family is a peaceful family. My family is god-fearing. Reporter: Encouraging people to make their voice matter and vote. Not just vote for the president. Vote in the preliminaries. Vote for everybody. Educate yourself. It's a lot of us.

Reporter: Former officer Derek chauvin under suicide watch and charged with third degree murder, seen in that horrific video. The Floyd family attorney releasing an independent autopsy claiming his death was a homicide from asphyxia, and the report saying Floyd dying from a heart attack resulting from neck constriction. The state's attorney general now joining the case vowing to charge others responsible, yet warning other convictions might be a challenge. But that doesn't mean that when we get to a courtroom that it's going to be some sort of easy slam dunk. History proves that it isn't. Reporter: Terrance then leading a rousing tribute to the What's his name? George Floyd! What's his name? George Floyd! Reporter: Before leaving, seeking out a white protester in order to show a powerful moment of unity. After two relatively peaceful days, the governor announced they will begin scaling back the national guardsmen starting today. Alex, thank you. Protests already under way in New York, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Denver, and elsewhere in this country. Here in New York City tonight,
