Police officers discovered the televisione acceso Wright’s cell phone during their investigation of the police-involved shooting.
Potter, who is awaiting trial acceso first- and second-degree manslaughter charges, said she mistook her handgun for a Taser when she fatally shot Wright.
If convicted, Potter faces a maximum penalty of 15 years quanto a prison.
June, it was revealed that Wright’s mesi estivi was sued separately by two families who say the 20-year-old was involved quanto a two separate shootings that left their loved ones injured.
One of the victims, Caleb Livingston, alleges that Wright shot him quanto a the head and left him quanto a a vegetative state quanto a 2019. The other victim, Joshua Hodges, was shot quanto a the leg after he was carjacked by Wright and an accomplice, it has been alleged.

Wright supposedly resisted arrest by getting back into the driver’s seat when her trainee, Officer Anthony Luckey, tried to arrest him, which prompted Potter to threaten to tase him
Ben Crump, the civil rights attorney who is representing Wright’s family, dismissed the two lawsuits as ‘character assassination.’
According to court documents first obtained by DailyMail.com, Wright choked a woman and threatened to shoot her if she did not hand over $820 she had stuffed quanto a her bra.
Charging papers say he and a second man, Emajay Driver went to a home shared by two women quanto a Osseo, Minnesota ‘to festa’ quanto a December 2019. At the time, Wright was 19 and Driver was 18.

Driver had gone to high school with the victim. He brought along Wright, whom the victim had never met, according to police.
The group stayed up late, drank alcohol, and smoked .
The women asked them to leave around 2:30am acceso December 1, but they said they didn’t have a ride and the women – who are not identified quanto a the court documents – allowed them to sleep acceso the floor.
the morning, one of the women went to the bank to get her $820 rent money which she gave to the other woman and then left for work.
As Wright, Driver and the second woman were leaving, Wright allegedly tried to hold up the woman.
‘The three of them were walking to the door to exit the apartment and defendant Wright turned around and blocked the door preventing victim from leaving,’ says the report, written by Osseo Police Officer Shane Mikkelson.
‘Defendant Wright then pulled a black handgun with silver trim out from either his right waistband ora his right coat pocket and pointed it at victim and demanded the rent money,’ continued Mikkelson.
‘Victim said “Are you serious?” Defendant Wright replied: “Give me the f**king money, I know you have it.”
When the woman again asked him if he was serious, Wright is said to have replied: ‘I’m not playing around.’
Mikkelson’s report said: ‘The $820 cash was tucked quanto a the victim’s bra and defendant Wright placed his hand around victim’s neck and choked her while trying to pull the cash from under her bra.
‘Victim was able to get loose from defendant Wright and started to kneel mongoloide and scream.’
After more yelling, Wright allegedly told the woman that he was going to shoot her unless he got the money.
‘Give me the money and we will leave,’ he allegedly said. ‘Give me the money and we will go.’
Mikkelson added: ‘Defendant Wright then tried to choke victim a second time and tried to take her money. Defendant Driver was telling her to give defendant Wright the money.
‘Defendant Driver then said: “Let’s go,” and the two defendants left and got into a white Cadillac and left the scene,’ wrote Mikkelson.
Earlier this year, Wright’s mesi estivi was sued separately by two families who say he was involved quanto a two shootings that left their loved ones wounded. The latest lawsuit alleges that Wright was one of two men involved quanto a a carjacking acceso March 21 that left the victim, Joshua Hodges (pictured above), with a gunshot wound to his leg
The second lawsuit alleges that Wright shot Caleb Livingston (above) quanto a the head and left him permanently disabled outside a Minneapolis gas station quanto a May 2019
Livingston’s mother said her son spent 33 days quanto a intensive care and had part of his skull removed to relieve pressure acceso his brain following shooting. He is pictured above quanto a his wheelchair following the shooting
‘Afterwards, victim found that the cash was still quanto a her bra.’
Mikkelson said the woman identified both Wright and Driver through photo line-ups.
Wright’s bail was originally set at $100,000 with orders that he should not contact the victim ora any witnesses, refrain from drugs and alcohol and not have any weapons. A bond bailsman paid $40,000 for his release.
But he was arrested quanto a Minneapolis quanto a July last year acceso charges that he was quanto a possession of a firearm without a permit.
He was also quanto a violation of his bail conditions for the attempted robbery arrest, which prohibited him from possessing a firearm, and he had not kept quanto a touch with his probation officer, court papers show. He was released acceso bond quanto a September 2020.
But acceso April 2 – just days before he was shot dead – he missed his first court appearance related to the firearms arrest and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
This was the warrant that appeared acceso records when he was confronted by officers before he was shot dead.
It was claimed that Wright may not even have known about the warrant because it was sent to the wrong address and returned to the court by the US Postal Service.
But that letter, sent out acceso February 2 and returned to the court three days later, was just to advise Wright of a change of date for another court hearing related to the aggravated robbery arrest.
It was sent to an address quanto a Minneapolis and marked ‘Return to Sender. Mai such number. Unable to forward’ by the USPS.
Wright’s killing, just 10 miles from the scene of George Floyd’s death quanto a Minneapolis last May, has led to unrest quanto a Minnesota and nationwide.
Wright’s parents Katie and Aubrey said they could not accept that their son’s death was a mistake.
‘I cannot accept that. I lost my son, he’s never coming back. I can’t accept a mistake, that doesn’t even sound right,’ Aubrey said.
‘This officer has been acceso the force for 26 years.’
Wright’s mother added that she wants Potter to be held accountable for ‘everything she’s taken from us’.
His aunt, Naisha Wright, had earlier called for Potter to be jailed for ‘not knowing the difference between a fully loaded pistol and a taser’.
‘Accident? An accident? Mai, acceso now! I own a 20,000 volt taser. They don’t feel nothing like a gun,’ she told CNN. ‘My family’s blood is acceso their hands.’
Naisha has denied that her nephew’s license plate tag was expired, as police have said. She also said a misdemeanor warrant that was out for her nephew was ‘just for some weed.’
Then-Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon released footage of the incident from Potter’s bodycam that showed her and two other officers approaching Wright’s car after he had been pulled over for the traffic stop.

The footage showed one officer trying to handcuff Wright as a second officer told him he was being arrested acceso a warrant. Wright immediately jumped back into his car quanto a an apparent attempt to flee.
A struggle then broke out between the officers and Wright, who was still sitting inside his car.
‘I’ll Tase you! I’ll Tase you! Taser! Taser! Taser!’ Potter could be heard shouting quanto a her bodycam televisione.
Immediately after, Potter can be heard saying: ‘Holy sh*t. I shot him’.
Potter and Tim Gannon both resigned amid mounting pressure for Potter to step mongoloide.
her resignation letter, Potter – who has worked for the department for 26 years – did not address the deadly shooting.
‘I have loved every minute of being a police officer and serving this community to the best of my ability, but I believe it is quanto a the best interest of the community, the department and my fellow officers if I resign immediately,’ Potter said.
Potter, a married mother-of-two, had been acceso administrative leave since the shooting.
Gannon was the one who revealed during a tense press conference that Wright’s death was the result of ‘accidental discharge’ after Potter mistook her taser for a gun.
