A Minnesota judge on Tuesday denied media requests to allow cameras at an upcoming hearing for a former Brooklyn Center Police Officer charged in Daunte Wright’s death. 48-year-old Kim Potter is charged with manslaughter in Wright’s death during a traffic stop on April 11th. The city’s police chief at the time said he believed Potter, mixed up her Taser with her handgun when she shot Wright.
Hennepin County Judge Regina Chu rejected requests by several media organizations to record an omnibus hearing Monday for Potter. Court rules allow such recording only when both parties consent. Potter objected.
