MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — As the special session of the legislature kicks off Monday, one of the topics that will be debated is police reform. It was the April killing of Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center that kicked off the latest push for police reform. Wright was killed when he was shot by officer Kim Potter who appeared to confuse her taser for her service weapon.
Three weeks before he was killed by Brooklyn Center Police, a new lawsuit alleges Daunte Wright participated in the carjacking and shooting of a 20-year-old black man on North Washington Avenue in Minneapolis. The victim, Joshua Hodges, survived the gunshot wound to his leg but spent two weeks in the hospital and continues to suffer pain and permanent injuries, according to his attorney Mike Padden.
