Man shot by police after traffic stop

The family of a 20-year-old Minnesota man says he was shot and killed by police Sunday before reentering his car and crashing the vehicle several blocks away, further inflaming tensions over the use of police violence across the nation.

Relatives of Daunte Wright told a crowd gathered in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, about 10 miles north of Minneapolis, that Wright drove for a short distance after he was shot and died at the scene following a traffic stop, according to The Star Tribune

“He called me at about 1:40, said he was getting pulled over by the police,” said a woman, who identifies herself as Wright’s mother, according to a Facebook Live video. “He said they pulled him over because he had air fresheners hanging from his rearview mirror.”
