A police chief in Brooklyn Center outside of Minneapolis released the body camera footage Monday showing the officer-involving shooting of 20-year-old Daunte Wright, categorizing the event as an “accidental discharge.”

Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon said he believed the so far unidentified officer intended to reach for a Taser but mistakenly grabbed her service weapon and deployed a single bullet. Both the chief and Mayor Mike Elliott declined to release the officer’s name at this time but said the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension should be releasing information about all involved parties soon.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Minneapolis area erupted in looting and riots late Sunday after an unidentified officer fatally shot Wright during a traffic stop just 10 miles from where Chauvin had Floyd pinned to the pavement last May. A citywide curfew was issued by Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott until 6 a.m. CT Monday.


The press conference Monday afternoon was at times confrontational and emotional, as Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon and Mayor Mike Elliott shared details on what happened during the traffic stop and showed the graphic body cam video.

The officer whose body camera footage was shown is heard shouting “Taser! Taser” as she pulls out a gun. After firing the gun, the officer says is heard saying, “Holy s**t, I just shot him.”

After being shot, Wright drove away, then crashed his car, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The officer has now been placed on administrative leave.

Gannon explained, “As I watched the video and listen to the officer’s commands, it is my belief that the officer had the intention to deploy their Taser but instead shot Mr. Wright with a single bullet. This appears to me from what I viewed and the officer’s reaction in distress immediately after that this was an accidental discharge that resulted in the tragic death of Mr. Wright.”

WATCH the just released body cam footage below.

Officers had been trying to arrest Wright when he jumped back into his vehicle, prompting the deadly shooting.

Below is the full press briefing which just occurred Monday afternoon:

Violent protests and looting broke out Sunday night after Wright was killed.

  1. Why are these people not in jail. Wright had a warrant out for his arrest he knew by fighting that something would happen. Why do these people always fight being arrested when they know that they are in the wrong. It’s like they’re setting up the police to do something to them so they can sue the city for millions. And as far as black lives matter with their rioting their people must have needed new things such as sneakers clothes records phones etc. Why aren’t they being shot at why are they getting away with destroying property. Take them all down and if they put up a fight shoot them. They don’t care about the businesses that they’ve ruined the people’s livelihood that they ruined. They’re only concerned with how much they can get for free

  2. Why does the perp always run ???? The cop wouldn’t have grabbed a weapon at all if he stayed . Panic on her part . Sad.

  3. If he had not suddenly decided to resist arrest, he would still be alive today. A very unfortunate outcome, tragic for his family in fact, but his own fault he put himself in that situation.

  4. Only thing tragic about this shooting is the innocent business owners getting looted by a bunch of thugs. Dude was a gang banger, a criminal who didn’t care about anyone else’s life so I struggle caring about his. Same with all the looters and rioters. How do you care about ppl with so much disrespect for others.

  5. Something about this doesn’t make sense. If he was in a car trying to outrun the police, why would the officer have meant to grab the stun gun rather than a gun?

  6. Another career criminal off the streets due to resisting arrest. Due to his very own stupidity, norhing else. Billy bad a$$ thought he could outrun or kill them.

  7. He resisted arrest!!!! Does anyone get
    that part??? If I’m stopped and arrested I would allow the process and be alive to be fined or let go PERIOD!!!

  8. What the governor should have said is, another black man killed because he resisted arrest. The Governor is trying to save his house from being burnt to the ground by BLM. This accident would not have happened if he wouldn’t have tried to flee. Remember people, he was being arrested on gun charges. This officer was already on alert because of that and she had no idea if he was going after a gun or not.

  9. The genesis of this mess was another incident of a Black individual actively resisting a lawful arrest. The Black community should do an introspect to this tragic phenomenon.

    • They would not know how to do that. BLM DOES NOT TEACH THAT… RACISM…..POLICE BRUTALITY…..AND MIND YOU, THE BLM FOUNDERS GET RICHER AND MORE POWERFUL…..THIS PERSON SHOT, EVEN THOUGH I DO NOT AGREE WITH HIM BEING SHOT AND KILLED, WAS RESISTING ARREST ON TOP OF BEING ON POLICE “RADAR” WITH A WARRANT….HE WAS NOT A GOOD PERSON.. PUT YOURSELF IN THE POLICE SHOES AT THAT MOMENT AND WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE…..I KNOW WHAT I WOULD HAVE DONE AND IT WILL NOT TAKE A ROCKET SCIENTIST TO FIGURE IT OUT

  10. just give 27 plus go fund me 14 to all blacks people..just wait Who’re kamala will produce money to bail all this BLM the looters and criminals..and is not Over more Killings intended to makes money..

  11. Even if he was was able to get away from the police, and he knew that the police knew who he was, didn’t he realize that it was only a matter of time until he was caught again? And at which point he would then be facing even more charges? A very dumb criminal indeed!

  12. Did anyone notice that there is no gunshots heard? Also, the female cop had to tell her partners that she shot him. And the partner said, “you did?” I shoot guns and you can hear them and the person next to you hears it too…guaranteed!!

  13. Notice the rush to identify this officer, and yet still no identification of the officer who shot to death Ashli Babbitt three months ago! No equal justice any more.

  14. The black community is enslaved by the lie of victim hood. No improvements in their lives, culture or mentality will happen until personal responsibility takes root. And, a renewed understanding of what it means to be “rich”. Poverty of the mind can’t be cured with $200 sneakers and gold chains. The current black mindset and culture is POOR, no matter how many Benjamin’s one can flash. That’s the blunt, 100% truth. This kid got himself killed. Take responsibility for your actions folks!

  15. So at the time this sad affair happened, the officer was contrite and remorseful for her accidental shooting. And for that we riot, loot, burn, and steal. Come on man, use your brain.
