Who is Daunte Wright and what happened to him?

Daunte Wright, 20, was killed by a Brooklyn Center police officer shortly before 2pm yesterday during a routine traffic stop.

Wright’s sobbing mother Katie told a crowd he called her to say he had been pulled over by police because of air freshener that was dangling from his rear view mirror.

She said she heard officers tell her son to put his phone down, and then one of the officers ended the call. 

Soon after, her son’s girlfriend told her he had been shot.

She told reporters: “All he did was have air fresheners in the car and they told him to get out of the car.

“He got out of the car and his girlfriend said they shot him.


“He got back in the car and drove away and crashed and now he was dead on the ground since 1.47. 

“Nobody will tell us anything and nobody will talk to her.

“I asked them to please take my son off the ground — he’s been there since 1.47 this afternoon.”
