A man who was charged with helping set fire to a Minneapolis police precinct during May unrest pleaded guilty on Thursday.

Bryce Williams, 26, allegedly ignited a molotov cocktail and handed it to a fellow violent demonstrator who then hurled the incendiary device at the law enforcement headquarters, according to the New York Post. The 26-year-old was booked for conspiracy to commit arson following the death of George Floyd, who died after a police officer knelt on his neck for over eight minutes, the Post reported.

Williams was also suspected of hurling a box onto a fire that raged near the precinct, according to the Post. A total of three other men were arrested in connection to the same crime for scaling a fence and torching the building, the Post reported.
