Daunte Wright's funeral to be held April 22 in Minneapolis
MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - Ben Crump, the attorney representing the family of Daunte Wright, confirmed Wright's funeral will be held next week at a church in Minneapolis.
Wright died on Sunday after a Brooklyn Center police officer shot him with a handgun at a traffic stop. The officer resigned from her position and has been charged with second-degree manslaughter.
During a press conference, Crump said the service would be held on Thursday, April 22 at noon at Shiloh Temple International Ministries at 1201 West Broadway Avenue in Minneapolis.
Rev. Al Sharpton announced his organization, the National Action Network, will cover Wright's funeral costs. Sharpton will also give a eulogy at the upcoming service.
