Shelby County District Attorney Stephen Mulroy said Thursday announcing the allegations: “The world is watching us and we need to show the world what lessons we can learn from this tragedy.
“We all want the same thing. We want justice for Tyre Nichols.”
Police are expected to release a video of Tyre Nichols soon.
Memphis police said they would release video of Tyre Nichols’ arrest around 7:00 pm EST.
The police cadre will play a key role in the prosecution of five officers charged with the murder of a 29-year-old man.
