Peaceful protest

Protesters gathered on the Broad Street Bridge in Nevada City Monday in response to the death of Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old African American man who was fatally shot April 11 during a traffic stop in a Minneapolis suburb. The trial against former police officer Derek Chauvin — accused in the shooting death of George Floyd — is currently taking place not far from where Wright was shot. While Minnesota police reportedly claim the officer mistakenly drew her gun instead of a Taser, President Joe Biden has called for a “full-blown investigation” into Wright’s death.
