Initially, the officer seen kneeling on Floyd until he passed, Derek Chauvin, was the only officer arrested. He was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

Wednesday, Ellison made the announcement that all four of the officers–Thomas Lane, J.A. Keung, and Tou Thao, along with Chauvin– will be now charged. Ellison is increasing charges against the now former Minneapolis police officer Chauvin to second-degree murder.
