MINNEAPOLIS – Family and friends of Daunte Wright remembered the 20-year-old Black father fatally shot during a traffic stop by a veteran Minnesota police officer at a funeral service in Minneapolis on Thursday.

“He was a brother, a jokester,” Wright’s mother, Katie Wright, said as she fought back tears. “He was loved by so many. He is going to be so missed.”

Hundreds of mourners were inside Shiloh International Ministries for the service on Thursday, 11 days after Wright’s death in nearby Brooklyn Center.

Katie Wright reflected on Wright’s son, Daunte, Jr., and the “joy” the child brought him.

“He was so happy and so proud and he said he couldn’t wait to make his son proud,” Katie Wright said.
