Biden calls for ‘peace and calm’ in wake of Daunte Wright shooting in Minnesota

President Joe Biden on Monday called for “peace and calm” in the wake of the “tragic” fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright in Minnesota.

“I haven’t called Daunte Wright’s family, but my prayers are with the family. It’s really a tragic thing that happened,” Biden told reporters in the Oval Office of Wright’s death Sunday. “The question is, was it an accident? Was it intentional? That remains to be determined by a full-blown investigation,” he said, describing the body-camera footage of the shooting as “fairly graphic.”

Wright, 20, was shot and killed by a police officer on Sunday after he was pulled over in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Center. According to Wright’s mother, who’d spoken to her son before the shooting, he was pulled over for allegedly having an air freshener hanging from his rear-view mirror, which is illegal in Minnesota.
