Daunte Wright shooting: See the Key moments in the trial of Kimberly Potter

A Minnesota jury has found ex-police officer Kimberly Potter guilty of manslaughter in the deadly shooting of 20-year-old black motorist Daunte Wright in April.The three-week trial saw emotional testimonies from witnesses and dramatic body-cam footage of the moment Potter pulled her gun from her right holster and shot Wright.

Prosecutors claimed that the veteran officer of 26 years should have known the difference between her gun and a Taser, while her defense claimed Wright resisted arrest and said Potter did not consciously seek to take his life.

Potter notably took the stand to testify in her own defense, weeping in the course of  interrogation.
