Derek Chauvin, who was fired on Tuesday along with three other officers involved in the detainment of Floyd, was taken into custody Friday and faces charges of 3rd-degree murder and manslaughter, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman announced. Freeman said he expected more charges to come, possibly against some of the other three officers.

“The investigation is ongoing,” Freeman said, “We felt it was appropriate to focus on the most dangerous perpetrator. This case has moved with extraordinary speed.”All of that has come together and we felt, in our professional judgement, it was time to charge,” Freeman told reporters during a news conference. 

“We have now been able to put together the evidence that we need. Even as late as yesterday afternoon, we didn’t have all that we needed,” Freeman said. Freeman said he would not speculate about the three other officers involved in Floyd’s arrest but said he anticipates charges.
