The killing of Daunte Wright

Daunte Wright, 20, was shot and killed during a traffic stop in Brooklyn Center, Minn., on April 11, 2021. The city’s police chief said that officer Kim Potter, a 26-year police veteran, had intended to stun the man with her Taser gun but accidentally drew her handgun instead and fired once.

Wright’s death sparked days of protests, and Potter, the officer who shot Wright, resigned two days after the killing, as did police Chief Tim Gannon.
