20-year-old Daunte Wright was shot by police in a traffic stop gone wrong in Brooklyn Center, Minneapolis, just 10 miles from the location of the trial of Derek Chauvin for the killing of George Floyd roughly nine months ago.

The detail of the incident remain unclear, but body and dashcams were reportedly on during the altercation and should reveal more details once released to the public.
