‘It’s just unbelievable that happened’: De Blasio weighs in on Daunte Wright shooting

Mayor Bill de Blasio has shown public support for Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old victim of a police shooting in Minnesota. On social media and in his morning media events, de Blasio has expressed that a “full investigation” into the ‘mistaken’ use of a gun, instead of a taser, needs to happen and the family needs justice.

Wright was fatally shot during a traffic stop in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, in what’s been  described as “an accidental discharge.” The city was already poised to be plunged into chaos because of the ongoing trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minnesota officer charged with George Floyd’s death.
