New revelations into the Daunte Wright shooting case gave out startling information about the 20-year-old slain victim recently.
According to local media outlets, Daunte Wright was found to have an open warrant for armed robbery attached to his name, right before he was shot dead by a veteran police officer on Monday.
The cop wrongly assumed that she had a taser on her hands and therefore struck the 20-year-old, only finding out within moments how she had accidentally fired gunshots instead, instantly killing him on the spot.
20-year-old Wright and another fellow individual both had received charges for a first-degree attempted robbery that reportedly took place in December of 2019. Here, it is assumed that he attempted to steal away 820 dollars from another woman at gunpoint, as reported by the documents from Hennepin County District Court.
The duo had reportedly both crashed at the poor victim’s home, which was located in the city of Osseo, right after they both attended a party that took place at the same location. Moreover, the next day, they demanded cash from the woman while pointing a gun that was directly aimed at her, mentioned the authorities in the court papers.
Wright allegedly told the female in a harsh tone, “Give me the f*cking money now and I am not playing around with you.” On that note, the victim became surrounded with fear and shock, refusing at first and then screaming out loud so that both men would be forced to leave, claim prosecutors.
For a second time, Wright boldly told the woman to give the funds quietly, and then the men would leave. Eventually, the men exited from her premises without any cash, mentioned the documents but they were later apprehended by the police. However, they were released upon a mega $100,000 bail. But again, Wright failed to stay in touch with the court monitor, which was a violation of the conditions mentioned in his bail.
