Kim Potter to be sentenced for Daunte Wright’s manslaughter (LIVE) | USA Today


The former Minnesota police officer who fatally shot Daunte Wright while yelling “Taser” during a traffic-stop-turned-arrest in a Minneapolis suburb will be sentenced Friday. A Minnesota jury found Kim Potter guilty late last year of first- and second-degree manslaughter in the April shooting in Brooklyn Center. The incident happened during the nearby trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd, and sparked days of protests and looting and inflamed nationwide tensions over police violence. The family of Wright, a 20-year-old Black man, are expected to make victim impact statements during sentencing. Attorneys for Wright’s family have asked for the “strongest and most just sentence possible” for Potter, a veteran officer who had been with the police department for 26 years.
