(FOX NEWS) – Minnesota remains on edge as jury deliberation is expected to continue Tuesday before deciding the fate of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin charged in the death of George Floyd.
More than 3,000 National Guard soldiers, along with state and local police officers, sheriff’s deputies and other law enforcement personnel have flooded Minneapolis in recent days, with a verdict looming in the Chauvin trial, and following the fatal police shooting of 20-year-old Daunte Wright in the nearby city of Brooklyn Center.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys ended closing arguments in the Chauvin trial Monday after making their cases to jurors following weeks of testimony amid nationwide concerns over potential unrest that could follow once a verdict is reached.
Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill said the court is in recess, “until we hear from the jury.” Jury deliberation could take hours, days or weeks. The jury consists of six White people and six people who are Black or multiracial.
