The attorney for the family of George Floyd says they are seeking an independent autopsy after findings by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner.

Attorney Benjamin Crump said the preliminary results released by the medical examiner show Floyd's cause of death to be the "combined effects of Mr. Floyd's being restrained by police, underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system."
