The former police officer who allegedly shot and killed 20-year-old Daunte Wright was arrested Wednesday and charged with second-degree manslaughter for acting in a “criminally negligent” manner that resulted in a person’s death.
“Agents with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) this morning arrested a former Brooklyn Center police officer for the April 11 shooting death of Daunte Wright,” the state agency said on Twitter.
“Agents took Kim Potter into custody at approximately 11:30 a.m. at the BCA in St. Paul.”
The 48-year-old seemingly confused her firearm for a taser during a traffic stop in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.
“The 26-year veteran and Police Chief Tim Gannon both resigned in the wake of the shooting. The city council also fired City Manager Curt Boganey over the incident,” reports the New York Post.
