The jury met for about five hours Monday following closing arguments in which prosecutors accused Kim Potter of a “blunder of epic proportions” in Wright’s death in an April 11 traffic stop — but said a mistake was no defense.

The jury begins deliberations in Kim Potter’s trial over the killing of Daunte Wright.
The manslaughter trial of former police officer Kim Potter is now in the hands of the jury after attorneys finished their closing arguments.
Potter fatally shot 20-year-old Daunte Wright during a traffic stop in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Center last April.
Prosecutor says Potter should have known the difference between her gun and her Taser.
The mostly white jury got the case after about a week and a half of testimony about an arrest that went awry, setting off angry protests in Brooklyn Center just as nearby Minneapolis was on edge over Derek Chauvin’s trial in George Floyd’s death. Potter resigned two days after Wright’s death.
