Three more Minneapolis officers to be charged in George Floyd’s death, Klobuchar says

Three more Minneapolis police officers will be charged in the death of George Floyd, U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar says.

Klobuchar tweeted Wednesday that Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison also will

, already arrested on third-degree murder, to second-degree murder in Floyd’s death.

“This is another important step for justice,” Klobuchar said.

Klobuchar served as prosecutor in Hennepin County — home to Minneapolis — before she was elected to the U.S. senate in 2006.

Ellison has not yet announced charges against other police officers in the death of Floyd, a black man seen pinned to the ground by Chauvin in a video before he died. Ellison was expected to announce developments in the case Wednesday afternoon.

A Minneapolis Star Tribune story, which Klobuchar retweeted, cited law enforcement sources saying three other offices at the scene of the incident with Floyd will be charged.

An attorney for one of the officers at the scene of Floyd’s death said the Star Tribune story “is accurate,” according to The Associated Press.

All four officers at the scene have been fired.
