Daunte Wright: aggravated robbery charges after ‘choking and holding a woman at gunpoint for $820 in 2019’

  • Daunte Wright was shot dead by Brooklyn Center Police Officer Kimberly Potter Sunday after he was pulled over for ‘expired license plate tags’
  • DailyMail.com can reveal Wright, 20, had a warrant out for his arrest at the time related to misdemeanor firearms offences
  • He had previously been arrested for attempted aggravated robbery charges
  • Charging papers allege Wright and a second man, Emajay Driver, attended a party in December 2019 at the home of two women in Osseo, Minnesota
  • The women allowed the pair to crash after they said they didn’t have a ride home 
  • The next morning, after one of the women went to withdraw $820 in rent money, Wright allegedly held her at gunpoint and demanded she give him the cash
  • His bail was originally set at $100k with orders that he should not contact the victim or any witnesses, refrain from drugs and alcohol and not have any weapon
  • It was revoked in July last year due to his ‘failure to not possess a firearm or ammunition’ and not keeping in touch with his probation officer
  • He missed a court appearance on April 2, and a warrant was issued for his arrest, which is the one that appeared on a police search before he was shot dead
