Minnesota Officer Meant To Grab Taser Before Shooting Black Man, Police Say

A Minnesota police chief said he believes an officer wanted to use a Taser, but mistakenly drew a service revolver before fatally shooting a Black man at point-blank range during a traffic stop.

The Brooklyn Center Police Department released body-camera footage of Sunday afternoon's encounter that ended in the death of Daunte Wright, 20.

Wright was shot in the Minneapolis suburb, which is about 14 miles north of where George Floyd was killed last year.
