The Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot 20-year-old Daunte Wright during a traffic stop Sunday afternoon has been identified as Kim Potter, a 26-year veteran of the Brooklyn Center Police Department. "Taser! Taser!" officer Potter could be heard yelling on the body-worn camera footage released by police Monday, which included the moment Wright was shot. Potter is then seen grabbing her handgun and firing a bullet. So how could a veteran cop mistake their gun for a much lighter taser?
