Killing of Daunte Wright followed by resignations, protests and arrests. (includes video story)

In a Minneapolis suburb, loved ones are mourning the killing of 20-year-old Daunte Wright, who was killed by police during a traffic stop.

“He loved his son,” said partner Chyna Whitaker while holding their crying 1-year-old son Daunte Jr. “That’s not fair that his son can’t have his father in his life.”

Brooklyn Center police officer Kim Potter, who’s been on the force for over 26 years, allegedly grabbed for her gun instead of her taser and accidentally shot Wright. She resigned on Tuesday along with the suburb’s police chief.

Less than 15 miles away, former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s trial continues after killing George Floyd.

The outraged community rallies during this emotional event that occurred days ago. Protestors plea for systematic change. More than 60 people were arrested in Wednesday’s protests.
