(ETH) – Riots have continued for a third night straight in Minneapolis following the death of Daunte Wright by a police officer named Kimberly Potter who alleged that she accidentally fired her gun killing Wright when she intended to use her stun gun.
According to the latest report, protesters have now burned down a police building and have forced officer Potter to flee her home after her home address was leaked online. The report stated that the 25-year veteran of the Brooklyn Center Police Department was barricaded at the residence as crowds gathered outside her five-bedroom home.
Potter has initially resigned from her position from the police force after being placed on administrative leave in the wake of Daunte’s death but the latest report from The New York Post has revealed that Potter will now be charged with manslaughter
“Agents with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) this morning arrested a former Brooklyn Center police officer for the April 11 shooting death of Daunte Wright,” the state agency said on Twitter. “Agents took Kim Potter into custody at approximately 11:30 a.m. at the BCA in St. Paul.” However, Potter was later released from custody just before 5:40 p.m. local time after posting a $100,000 bond.
