Biden says it 'remains to be determined' whether fatal Daunte Wright shooting was accident

President Joe Biden on Monday said it "remains to be determined" whether a fatal shooting of a Black man by law enforcement in a Minneapolis suburb on Sunday was an accident. Police in Brooklyn Center, Minn., say the officer who fired intended to use a Taser, not a handgun. Chief Tim Gannon described the shooting as "an accidental discharge." Twenty-year-old Daunte Wright died Sunday in Brooklyn Center, and Biden addressed the incident at the White House. "Question is, was it an accident or intentional?" Biden said. The president also said there was "absolutely no justification" for looting but that peaceful protest was "understandable."
