JUST IN: Derek Chauvin Convicted For Murder Of George Floyd


Derek Chauvin, former Minneapolis police officer, has been convicted for the murder of George Floyd

The jury at a Minnesota state court found Chauvin guilty on all three counts of murder at its sitting today.

Floyd, an African American, died in May 2020 after Chauvin pinned him to the ground and knelt on his neck.

The former officer was arresting him for allegedly spending a counterfeit $20 note in a shop.

The video of the incident in which Floyd pleaded, “I can’t breathe,” went viral and sparked major protests within and outside the US.

An autopsy later confirmed that the cause of Floyd’s death was linked to pressure on his neck.

Chauvin was sacked from his job alongside three other officers involved in the incident.
