A witness also told Toledo Fire and Rescue Department they had seen lightning hit the building before the collapse, according to WTOL11—which reported that the department confirmed this caused the wall to fall

Pictures circulating on social media showed that police had subsequently cordoned off the area, where the pile of bricks that formed the artwork remained.

According to WTVG, the building’s owner was already working on cleaning up the rubble and pulling down the remainder of the mural.

A spokesperson for the City of Toledo told the broadcaster it will work on plans for a new mural and that different locations that could house the artwork were being explored.

While witnesses reported the lightning strike, there were questions over whether this was the direct cause of the collapse.

Hugh Koogan, one of the City of Toledo’s building inspectors, told the Toledo Blade the collapse of the mural could have also been caused by natural deterioration

He added building inspectors had recently observed the middle part of the wall, the area that sustained most of the damage on Tuesday, had started bowing of late.

“It was just age., t just came away,” Koogan was quoted as saying. “It happens to the older buildings.”

Newsweek has contacted Toledo Police, Toledo Fire and Rescue Department and the City of Toledo for comment.

The mural was painted by artist David Ross in July 2020. Earlier this year memorial service for Floyd was held on the first anniversary of Floyd’s death, in scenes mirrored at similar sites nationwide.

It was painted on the building that used to house the Mugshots Bar, which is located on the corner of Summit Street and Lagrange Street, approximately one mile north of downtown Toledo
