Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who was convicted of killing George Floyd, was stabbed in prison on Friday and is seriously injured, the Associated Press reported, citing an unnamed source. 

The Bureau of Prisons confirmed to Business Insider that an inmate was assaulted at FCI Tucson around 12:30 p.m., though the agency did not name the inmate. The BOP also said prison employees performed "life-saving measures" and that the inmate was taken to a hospital. 

Chauvin was convicted in Minnesota in 2021 of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd, and sentenced to 22.5 years in prison. Floyd died after Chauvin knelt on his neck for more than nine minutes during a 2020 arrest that sparked nationwide outrage and widespread racial-injustice protests. 

Chauvin also later pleaded guilty to federal charges of violating Floyd's civil rights. He was sentenced to 21 years and transferred to a federal prison in Tucson, Arizona.
