MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Jury selection is entering its second week in the trial of a former Minneapolis police officer who is charged in the death of George Floyd.

Seven jurors have been chosen so far to hear evidence in Derek Chauvin's trial — five men and two women.

Four are white, one is mixed race, one is Black and one is Hispanic.

Attorneys will continue the process of questioning jurors one-by-one on Monday.

They need to pick 14 people — 12 will deliberate and two will be alternates.

Floyd was declared dead May 25 after Chauvin pressed his knee against his neck for about nine minutes.
