A rural Minneapolis cop who lethally shot a Black man during an end of the week traffic stop coincidentally drew her gun rather than an immobilizer, the city’s police boss said Monday. Albeit uncommon, a line of comparative occurrences has occurred lately across the U.S.

Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon said the official — later distinguished as Kim Potter, a 26-year veteran who has been put on managerial leave — had committed an error in discharging her weapon at 20-year-old Daunte Wright, who later kicked the bucket. Video of the shooting taken from the official’s body camera incorporates sound of her colloquialism “Blessed (exclamation)! I shot him,” in the wake of discharging a solitary round from her handgun.

Gannon said the official’s prompt misery showed her utilization of the firearm was inadvertent.
