NEW YORK (AP) — A video of a Buffalo police officer appearing to shove an elderly man who falls and cracks his head while police cleared out protesters in a city square drew widespread condemnation.

Buffalo's mayor says the police commissioner suspended two officers without pay late Thursday.

The mayor says the 75-year-old man was hospitalized in serious but stable condition.

Meanwhile in New York City, the latest night of protests sparked by the death of George Floyd at the hands of police was markedly calmer, although several videos posted to Twitter showed police aggressively confronting peaceful protesters.
