04 18 Tensions Rising In Minneapolis

Tensions are rising in Minneapolis as the closing arguments in the trial against Derek Chauvin are expected Monday.

On Sunday, hundreds rallied ahead of a potential verdict.

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is charged with the murder of George Floyd.

Chauvin held his knee to Floyd’s neck for more than nine-minutes during a incident last year.

He has pleaded not guilty to murder and manslaughter, and says he was using the methods he learned during his two decade career in law enforcement.

The jury will decide if Chauvin is guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and manslaughter. Or they could acquit him of all charges.
