NSP troopers head to Minnesota ahead of Chauvin verdict

LINCOLN, Neb. -- With a verdict in the trial against Derek Chauvin arriving Tuesday, authorities from Nebraska have traveled to Minnesota to help law enforcement agencies.

The Nebraska State Patrol got a request for assistance from the Emergency Management Assistant Compact, which is a partnership of state emergency management agencies.

The troopers will be in Minnesota while the jury deliberates on the fate of Chauvin, who is accused of killing George Floyd during an arrest in May of last year.

It is unclear how many troopers will be temporarily stationed in Minnesota at this time.

Chauvin was found guilty Tuesday afternoon on all three counts.
