Daunte Wright: Kim Potter to be charged with manslaughter in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota

The former Minnesota police officer who shot and killed Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black man, during a traffic stop was charged Wednesday with second-degree manslaughter, a prosecutor said.

Washington County Attorney Pete Orput charged Kim Potter, a 26-year veteran of the Brooklyn Center Police Department, in the shooting Sunday that has inflamed racial tensions in this city just miles from where George Floyd died during a police arrest last May.

Former Brooklyn Center police officer Kim Potter resigned after the death of Daunte Wright at a traffic stop in a Minneapolis suburb.
