The other three police officers involved in the killing of George Floyd will now be charged for their role in his tragic death, the family's lawyer has confirmed.

Speaking during an interview on NBC's "Today," the attorney representing Mr. Floyd's family said that authorities have told him that all four former officers involved in the infamous fatal arrest will now be charged.

Derek Chauvin was charged last week with third-degree murder and manslaughter.

Chauvin is the former officer seen in viral videos with his knee on Floyd's neck.

The footage, filmed by bystanders, shows two other officers during the incident, and the fourth officer standing nearby watching.

One of the ex-cops allegedly "held Mr. Floyd's back" and the other "held his legs."

"They will be charged," civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump said, according to The Blaze.

"That is what the family is hearing from authorities."

Chauvin and the two other officers were on Floyd's neck and back for more than eight minutes, even after he fell unconscious.

He had no pulse and was unresponsive when first responders arrived, and his condition never improved even as medical workers tried to revive him for more than an hour on the way to the hospital and in the emergency room.

The death was ruled a homicide by the Hennepin County medical examiner and by an independent autopsy done at the family's request, although the two reports listed different causes of death.

The county's report said he died of "cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression."

It pointed out that he had "arteriosclerotic and hypertensive heart disease," fentanyl intoxication, and recent methamphetamine use.

The independent report listed the cause of death as asphyxia, saying his brain and other organs stopped functioning because his oxygen was cut off due to the pressure on his neck and back.

All four officers have been fired from the Minneapolis Police Department.

The University of Minnesota and the Minneapolis Public School district cut ties with the department as a result of the incident.

The state Human Rights Department has launched an investigation into the MPD to examine its practices and policies for potential patterns of discrimination.
