(DCWatchdog.com) – BREAKING NOW: Just moments ago, after deliberating for four days, the jury in the trial of former Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, police officer Kim Potter, who was charged with first-degree and second-degree manslaughter in the death of Daunte Wright when she shot him with her service weapon instead of her Taser, delivered its verdict to the Minnesota state court where the case was tried.
Potter, age 49, a veteran police officer and training officer, testified in her own defense and stated that she accidentally pulled her semi-automatic handgun when she meant to pull her Taser. She fired one shot into Wright’s chest, and Wright subsequently died.
The jury found Potter guilty of first-degree manslaughter and guilty of second-degree manslaughter.
