A 25-year-old Minnesota man pleaded guilty Friday after authorities accused him of helping set fire to the Third Precinct headquarters of the Minneapolis Police Department last May.

The May 28 fire occurred during a night of rioting three days after George Floyd died in police custody in the city. 

The blaze caused around $12 million in damage and forced police to work out of temporary space, prosecutors have said, according to FOX 9 in Minneapolis.

The defendant, identified as Devon De-Andre Turner, was convicted on one count of conspiracy to commit arson. He admitted to district Judge Patrick J. Schiltz that he and another rioter lit an incendiary device that he took inside the precinct to start the fire, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced.
