Donald Wynn Williams II, an eyewitness at the scene of the incident, testified today that after being rushed into an ambulance, George Floyd called 911 because “I think I witnessed a murder”.
“I felt the need to call the police at the police station,” Williams continued.
When asked why he hadn’t spoken to officers who were already there, Williams said he felt they were implicated in the incident.
Williams’ 911 call from that day was played for the jury.
The tape can be heard how Williams informs the 911 operator outside the Cup Foods store that an official is “trying to kill these citizens.”
“He had his knee on the guy’s neck the whole time,” Williams said.
He told the 911 driver that Floyd “stopped breathing,” added, “He didn’t resist arrest or anything. He was handcuffed.”
“I don’t know if he’s safely dead. But he didn’t respond when the ambulance came and picked him up,” Williams said.
Williams seemed to get emotional on the stand as the tape played and at one point picked up a handkerchief to wipe his eyes.
