The former police officer on trial for killing Daunte Wright testified Friday she “wouldn’t have stopped the car” the day that led to the fatal shooting in Brooklyn Center, Minn., on April 11. Instead, the officer she was training made the decision to pull Wright over.
“I’m so sorry. … I didn’t want to hurt anybody,” Kimberly Potter said sobbing after returning from a break in the trial Friday at the Hennepin County Courthouse in Minneapolis.
The article goes on to state the following:
Potter, who worked as a Brooklyn Center police officer for 26 years, broke down as her defense attorney questioned her about the incident, which she said “just went chaotic.” She described what happened when Wright tried to break away from Officer Anthony Luckey, the trainee.
Potter first broke down and wept while being questioned by the defense about the traffic stop in which she accidentally shot Wright.
