Basseterre, St. Kitts (WINN) – Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Michael Chauvin is found guilty of murder and manslaughter for the death of George Floyd, Tuesday evening.

Floyd’s death in May 2020 sparked angry, sometimes violent, demonstrations and worldwide protests.

Videos circulated online with Chauvin, who is Caucasian American, with his knee on African American Mr. Floyd’s neck for closer to nine minutes during an arrest.

Floyd was filmed gasping “I can’t breathe” and onlookers were seen screaming at Chauvin to get off Floyd’s neck.

The jury reached its verdict after ten hours of deliberation over two days.
