Closing arguments take place in the trial of former Minnesota police officer Kimberly Potter

1 min read

Both sides deliver their closing arguments on Monday in the trial of ex-Minnesota cop Kimberly Potter with jury deliberations expected to begin once they end, CNN reports.

Potter faces first-degree and second-degree manslaughter charges for the fatal shooting of Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black man, during a traffic stop on April 11.

The ex-cop, who pled not guilty to both charges, took the stand on December 17. The incident took place during the trial of another White officer, Derek Chauvin, who was found guilty for the killing of George Floyd in the same Minnesota county in April.

The jury selected includes nine white, one Black and two Asian jurors.
