The mayor of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, told activists Tuesday he is committed to justice in the killing of Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black man who a police officer killed in a shooting Sunday. The police department said the shooting was accidental, but some community members and Wright's family aren't buying it. And while the officer resigned Tuesday, they wanted a firing and criminal charges instead.
