Former Police Officer Responsible For George Floyd’s Death, Derek Chauvin, Reportedly Stabbed In Prison

Derek Chauvin, the ex-Minneapolis police officer found guilty of the murder of George Floyd, sustained significant injuries in a prison stabbing incident.

The incident occurred at the medium-security Federal Correctional Institution in Tucson, where Chauvin was being held, according to the source. Although the Federal Bureau of Prisons did not officially confirm that the victim of the attack on Friday was indeed Chauvin, they did provide additional information in a statement.

The assault occurred around 12:30 p.m., as reported by the Bureau of Prisons. They stated that “responding employees initiated life-saving measures for one incarcerated individual.” The Bureau of Prisons also mentioned that they successfully isolated and contained the incident, assuring the public that there was no danger to them at any point.

An FBI spokesperson confirmed via email on Friday night that the FBI was cognizant of an assault occurring at the Federal Correctional Institute in Tucson. However, the spokesperson added that any further details would need to be obtained from the Bureau of Prisons.

Additionally, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison expressed his sorrow over the incident in a statement.

“I am sad to hear that Derek Chauvin was the target of violence,” Ellison said. “He was duly convicted of his crimes and, like any incarcerated individual, he should be able to serve his sentence without fear of retaliation or violence.”

Chauvin, who infamously knelt on George Floyd’s neck for 9½ minutes while Floyd pleaded that he couldn’t breathe and eventually became unresponsive, is currently serving two separate sentences. He is serving a 21-year federal sentence for the violation of George Floyd’s civil rights and a 22½-year state sentence for second-degree murder.
