There will be little sympathy for fired Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin but two days after he was fired in the death and George Floyd, and a day after he was charged with murder, the wife of the fired Minneapolis officer says she is devastated by George Floyd’s death, and a statement from Kellie Chauvin’s lawyer adds that she has filed for divorce. It was also revealed that Chauvin was involved in the shooting death of Wayne Reyes — a member of the Leech Lake Ojibwe Band in Minnesota. In October 2006, he was shot and killed by six Minneapolis police officers who were answering a call about a stabbing outside a pharmacy. After a car chase, Reyes allegedly got out of his vehicle with a shotgun. According to the autopsy report, Reyes was shot 23 times. According to media reports, Chauvin was one of the officers who responded to the call.
