The boy was fatally wounded while resisting arrest. The officer who fired, 48-year-old policewoman Kim Potter, allegedly confused the gun with the Taser. “When you watch the video and listen to the agent’s orders, it is assumed that he wanted to take the Taser, and instead he shot Wright a bullet,” said Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon. “After seeing him and seeing the agent’s immediate reaction, I believe it was an accident that caused this tragic death,” he added. The death of the young man has provoked strong protests and unrest in Minneapolis, the same city where one of the four agents involved in the death of George Floyd, the 46-year-old African American, who suffocated a detention in May last year, continues the trial. In the meantime, the fires and looting are countless throughout the city, dozens of arrests with the national guard arrived to give support to the police.
