Former police officer Derek Chauvin is serving a 22.5-year sentence for the 2020 killing that sparked BLM riots

Derek Chauvin, the ex-Minneapolis cop convicted of the on-duty murder of George Floyd, has been stabbed by a fellow inmate in federal prison, the Associated Press reported, noting that he sustained serious injuries.

The attack reportedly took place at the Federal Correctional Institution in Tucson, Arizona on Friday afternoon, a source familiar with the incident told the AP.

The US Bureau of Prisons has confirmed that an inmate was assaulted at the facility on Friday, though did not provide a name, only saying the victim received “life-saving measures” before they were taken to a hospital for treatment. The AP source added that Chauvin was “seriously injured” in the attack, though the extent of his injuries are unclear.
