A Brooklyn Center police officer fatally shot a man during a traffic stop Sunday afternoon, inflaming already raw tensions between police and community members in the midst of the Derek Chauvin trial.

Relatives of Daunte Wright, 20, who is Black, told a tense crowd gathered at the scene in the northern Minneapolis suburb Sunday afternoon that Wright drove for a short distance after he was shot, crashed his car, and died at the scene.

Protesters later walked to the Brooklyn Center police headquarters near N.

Officers repeatedly ordered the crowd of about 500 to disperse as protesters chanted Wright's name and climbed atop the police headquarters sign, by then covered in graffiti.

National Guard troops arrived just before midnight as looters targeted the Brooklyn Center Walmart and nearby shopping mall.

Sunday's fresh outrage came as Twin Cities officials and law enforcement are already on edge as Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer, stands trial on murder and manslaughter charges in the death of George Floyd.

About 20 Brooklyn Center businesses were looted, he said, but crowds largely dispersed.

Harrington says he can't comment on the shooting but he said the Brooklyn Center Police Department does have bodycams, so there is likely video.

After the shooting, Brooklyn Center police said officers pulled over a vehicle for a traffic violation shortly before 2 p.m.

That's when an officer discharged a weapon, striking the driver, police said.

Officers and medical personnel performed lifesaving measures but the driver was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Brooklyn Center officers wear body cameras and the Police Department said Sunday that it believes the body cameras and dash cameras were on during the incident.

A woman who lives near the crash scene, Carolyn Hanson, said she saw officers pull a man out of a car and perform CPR.
