Officer charged in death of Daunte Wright to appear in court

A former suburban Minneapolis police officer charged with two manslaughter charges for Daunte Wright’s death will appear in court through a video conference.

Former Brooklyn Center Officer Kim Potter is holding an omnibus hearing in Hennepin County on Monday afternoon, also known as the Preliminary Hearing.

The hearing is to examine the evidence to determine if there are possible causes for the case to proceed.

Wright was a 20-year-old black driver who was killed on April 11 after traffic stopped.

A former Brooklyn Center police chief believed that Potter intended to use a taser gun at Wright, but said he fired a pistol instead.
