Manslaught­er charge for Minnesota shooter-cop


MINNEAPOLI­S—The white suburban police officer who fatally shot a young Black motorist during a traffic stop in Minnesota, igniting several nights of civil unrest, was charged with manslaught­er on Wednesday, a day after the officer turned in her badge. Daunte Wright, 20, was pulled over on Sunday in Brooklyn Center, just outside Minneapoli­s, for what police said was an expired vehicle registrati­on, then struggled with police and was shot to death by officer Kimberly Potter, 48, who drew her handgun instead of a Taser. —REUTERS
