Vice President Harris and Rev. Al Sharpton speak at Tyre Nichols' funeral in Memphis.

After his Memphis memorial service on Wednesday, Tyre Nichols, whose violent arrest and death sparked uproar, was buried. After a traffic stop, police beat Nichols, who died three days later. Five dismissed and charged with second-degree murder officers.

The Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church service featured Vice President Kamala Harris, who spoke briefly.

Sharpton announced that family members of George Floyd, Botham Jean, Breonna Taylor, and Eric Garner— all of whom died in police encounters—would attend the memorial.

Tyre was described as "very peaceful... very respectful" by his brother at the service.

FedEx-employed 29-year-old Nichols had a 4-year-old son. He joined his mother and stepfather in Memphis before the outbreak.

CBS Sacramento interviewed his California childhood friends. Jerome Neal called Nichols "well-loved" at his local skate park.

Nichols was pulled over on Jan. 7 for careless driving, but the police chief said there was no evidence. The city revealed disturbing bodycam and surveillance camera footage on Friday showing him being beaten, kicked, and pepper sprayed.

His stepfather, Rodney Wells, said he died Jan. 10 of heart arrest and kidney failure. "Succumbed to his injuries," the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation reported.

Five dismissed Memphis police officers face second-degree murder, aggravated assault, aggravated kidnapping, official misconduct, and official oppression. 

Three Memphis firefighters and two police officers were discharged. Shelby County Sheriff Floyd Bonner Jr. fired two deputies.
