A black man with mental health issues died from asphyxiation after police officers in Rochester, N.Y., covered his head with a “spit hood” and pressed his face to the pavement for two minutes. Details from the March 23 incident surfaced after Daniel Prude’s family on Wednesday obtained video and reports from a public records request. New York Attorney General Letitia James said an investigation is ongoing. Protesters gathered Wednesday outside Rochester’s police headquarters and at the spot where Prude died, where they chanted and prayed.
