Gov. Tim Walz activated the Minnesota National Guard Thursday afternoon following developments in the case against the four former officers charged in the fatal arrest of George Floyd. 

Thursday morning, Judge Peter Cahill ruled the trial would proceed for former officers. He also dismissed the third-degree murder charge against Derek Chauvin, but kept the second-degree murder charge.
