Daunte Wright was being prosecuted for attempted robbery when he was killed by a policeman.
Daunte Wright was wanted on an open warrant in connection with an armed robbery case when he was shot and killed Sunday by a cop who said she thought she was shooting her Taser.
Wright, 20, and another man were charged in December 2019 with first-degree attempted aggravated robbery for allegedly attempting to steal $820 from a woman at gunpoint.
The pair crashed at the victim's home in the city of Osseo after a party there – and then demanded money the next morning while flashing a pistol, according to court documents.
“Give me the f–king money — I'm not fooling around,” Wright allegedly told the woman.
According to documents, the victim refused and started shouting at both men to leave.
Wright allegedly told her, "Give me the money, and we'll quit." "Give me the money and we'll go."
According to records, the two men finally left the house without any dough.
Wright was later convicted and released on $100,000 bail in the case. However, he breached his bail terms in July by failing to communicate with his court monitor, according to court documents.
According to the Daily Mail, he was also in possession of a pistol after his arrest for the robbery, which violated another bail condition.
When police in Brooklyn Center pulled Wright over Sunday for getting an expired license on his vehicle, the case was still pending.
According to police, officers then determined that Wright had an outstanding warrant for his bail violations and attempted to apprehend him — but he escaped and returned to his vehicle.
Kimberly Potter, a veteran officer, fired a single fatal shot at Wright, saying she mistook her Taser for her service weapon. Tuesday, she resigned from the military.
Police Chief Tim Gannon, who resigned Tuesday as well, previously said that officers did not discover a firearm in Wright's car.
Potter could face charges in connection with his death as early as Wednesday, according to sources.
