Suspect in custody after officer injured in LAPD police station
Body camera footage from George Floyd case to be publicly released
A Minnesota judge ordered the release of body camera footage recorded by two of the former police officers charged in the death of George Floyd.
The videos were filed with court officials last month, and transcripts of the audio have been released. A judge also allowed members of the media and the public to view the footage by appointment, The Associated Press reported.
Cahill's Friday ruling did not immediately specify how the footage would be released, according to multiple reports.
The order comes after attorneys for a coalition of media organizations, including the Minneapolis Star Tribune and The Associated Press, called on the judge to allow the footage to be published.
Floyd died after a former Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin, knelt on his neck for several minutes until Floyd was unresponsive during an arrest.
Chauvin has been charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
Keung, Lane and former officer Tou Thao have been charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter.
Floyd's death has sparked nationwide protests across the country and prompted demonstrators, activists and lawmakers to call for widespread police reform.
