WARNING: possibly graphic video. The Brooklyn Center, MN police released bodycam video footage of the moments leading up to the fatal shooting of 20-year-old Daunte Wright. It appears he was pulled over and in the middle of being detained when he tried to get back into the vehicle. That's when cops tried to get him out, some are yelling to use the taser, and one officer fires a single shot from their weapon - not the taser. This is being ruled as an accidental discharge.

It was the Brooklyn Center Police Chief, Tim Gannon, who went on record to call the shooting of Daunte Wright an "accidental discharge." He said, “It is my belief that the officer had the intention to employ their taser, but instead shot Mr. Wright with a single bullet.”

This has sparked riots in the Minneapolis area.
