- The Broward Sheriff's Office just released a statement as well following the guilty verdicts in the Derek Chauvin trial. Here's part of that.

"Today, jurors confirmed that Derek Chauvin's actions caused the death of Mr. George Perry Floyd Jr. For the majority of law enforcement officials in this country, this does not come as a surprise. Chauvin's conviction is a reminder to all who wear the badge that we are not above the laws which we swore to protect. Chauvin's lack of empathy and compassion and his brutality set off a firestorm across the world but moved the consciousness of America like never before."

We'll have more reactions to today's verdict throughout the night on CBS 4 News and CBSMiami.com.
