Family and friends gathered Wednesday for a public viewing of the body of Daunte Wright, the 20-year-old Black father fatally shot by a white police officer during a traffic stop in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Center. Reverend Al Sharpton is delivering the eulogy at Wright’s funeral in a Minneapolis church today.

This comes as Minnesota state lawmakers are considering legislation that would end qualified immunity for officers, place limits on when police can stop drivers, require the speedy release of body-camera footage in officer-involved shootings and strengthen civilian oversight of police.
