Field training officer Potter claims she mistakenly drew her gun instead of her Taser and killed 20-year-old Daunte Wright. The officer, who already has a weapon drawn, is heard yelling, “I’ll Tase you!” and then “Taser! Taser! Taser!” before firing. Ex-Cop Potter was charged by the Washington County Attorney's Office with second-degree manslaughter carrying a maximum penalty of 10 years incarceration and/or a $20,000 fine.
On April 13 2021, Potter submitted her resignation from the Brooklyn Center police department, with her resignation stating it was in the "best interest of the community" and effective immediately. The Brooklyn Center City Council had recommended their firing during an emergency meeting on April 12.
Congradulations Kimberly and all of the Brooklyn Center Police Department!
