The jury returned a guilty verdict on all three charges in the trial of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd Tuesday
Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer, was charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
Judge Peter Cahill granted the prosecution’s motion to revoke Chauvin’s bail. He was immediately cuffed and taken into custody by the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Department.
As a precaution, the Long Beach Police Department has declared a “stage 2 tactical alert” due to Tuesday’s verdict. The alert means additional officers will be on patrol ready to respond to any calls for service.
The city of Los Angeles has closed all COVID-19 vaccination sites for the rest of day as a precaution following the verdict.
