Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - NEW YORK — Minneapolis ex-police officer Derek Chauvin, convicted in the murder of George Floyd, has been stabbed at an Arizona prison, US media reports say.
A source told AP the 47-year-old was seriously injured by another inmate.
The New York Times, citing two people with knowledge of the situation, also reported that he was attacked.
Chauvin, who is white, is serving multiple sentences for the black man’s death, which triggered huge protests against police brutality and racism.
The Bureau of Prisons confirmed in a statement that an inmate at a federal prison in the city of Tucson was stabbed at 12:30 local time (19:30 GMT) on Friday.
The agency said employees contained the incident and “life-saving measures” were performed on the inmate, who was then taken to hospital. The name of the prisoner was not given.
Nobody else is thought to have been injured and Chauvin is reported to have survived the attack.
The reported incident comes days after the Supreme Court rejected his appeal, in which it was argued that he had not received a fair trial for the killing of Floyd — who died after Chauvin knelt on his neck for more than nine minutes in 2020.
The killing — captured on a bystander’s phone camera — sparked global outrage and a wave of demonstrations against racial injustice and police use of force.
Chauvin was later found guilty of Floyd’s murder and sentenced to 22 years in prison. He was given a further 20-year sentence in July 2022 for violating Floyd’s civil rights. — BBC
