The Daunte Wright family will be paid $3.25 million by the Brooklyn Center InSettlement ...

The city of Brooklyn Center has reached a financial settlement with Daunte Wright''s family and will seek to pay $3.2 million in a proposed settlement. However, as of Wednesday (January 22), the settlement has not been finalized. As the final phase of the proposal, the Daunte Wright family is waiting for an agreement to modify police policies and training.

According to NBC News, the family lawyers said they expect changes to traffic stops as well as training on implicit bias, de-escalation, and weapons confusion.

While the family is attempting to face justice for Wright''s unlawful killing, their lawyer stated, however, that they want to ensure that other persons of color benefit from the settlement.

Because of the changes the city must make to resolve our claims, Wrights parents, Katie and Arbuey Wright, have declared in a statement.

When former officer Kim Potter fatally shot him during a traffic stop on April 11, 2021, cops initially pulled Wright over for driving with expired tags and a car freshener hanging from his rear view mirror, Daunte Wright unjustly died. Potter and another officer attempted to arrest the young man, but Potter shot and killed Wright in the process.

Potter, 50, was found guilty of first-degree manslaughter in December 2021 and was sentenced to two years in prison in February 2022.
