WFLA Orlando

ORLANDO, Fla. (WFLA) – Protesters and police officers gathered Friday outside a Florida home that belongs to fired Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, who has been arrested for the death of George Floyd.

Orange County Sheriff John Mina addressed the gathering on Friday, saying his office is aware and monitoring the situation.

“Like a lot of other people, we learned a couple of days ago through social media that the former Minneapolis police officer, in fact, had an address – a home – here in Windermere,” Mina said. “We went out there to kind of monitor the situation.”

Sheriff Mina says his understanding is that the Windermere house is a vacation home. He says his deputies were able to get in touch with the family of the former officer and were told the family is not at the Florida home right now and have no intention of going to the home.
