A white police officer who shot dead a black motorist in Minnesota has been charged with second-degree manslaughter, prosecutors say.
Officer Kim Potter has been arrested and will be held in custody.
Mrs. Potter says she shot Daunte Wright accidentally, having mistakenly drawn her gun instead of her Taser.
Responding to the charges, the Wright family’s lawyer Ben Crump said the killing was an “intentional, deliberate, and unlawful use of force”. END
