The shooting of Daunte Wright was a “accidental discharge,” as the officer had planned to use a taser

Brooklyn: Brooklyn Police Chief Tim Gannon has called for the shooting of a black man, 20-year-old Daunte Wright, by an “accidental release.”

During a press conference on Monday he said he believed the officer was trying to remove the tile when Daunte Wright was shot.

He also added that officers are trained to handle a gun on one side of their forearm and a taser on the other.

A police officer who shot and killed Daunte Wright at Minneapolis Street was on leave. Police arrested Wright for violating traffic laws.
