Who is Daunte Wright's brother?
Damik Wright is Daunte's brother.
On April 12, 2021, he was pictured holding Daunte's son, Daunte Jr, over his head to look at riot cops at 63rd Avenue North and Lee Avenue North.
During an emotional interview on ITV's Good Morning Britain, Damik demanded Potter and her accompanying colleagues be dealt with "like they did with the George Floyd case" ahead of the Washington County attorney's announcement on their decision whether or not to file criminal charges against Potter.
What has he said about Daunte Wright's death?
Speaking about his brother's death Damik said to Good Morning Britain: "My brother should not be laid up in a metal box and a bag right now.
"I cried so much to the point that I can't cry no more. I have no tears. It hurts now, my eyes burn."
The young black man was shot just ten miles from where George Floyd was killed by Officer Derek Chauvin and has similarly sparked nationwide protests.
"You guys work together, you guys were all at the scene of a murder, the scene of a homicide… you guys should all be dealt with the same way.
"Just like they did with the George Floyd case," Damik continued.
"You're not just a rookie in this… You've been in the force for longer than I've been alive. Come on, make that make sense."
Despite his inevitable anger at Daunte's death, Damik said his family "does not condone" any violence.
"They not doing nothing but making it harder for us to get justice for my little brother.
"So I don't respect it, we don't condone it, we don't want none of that – we just want justice for Daunte Wright."
Has Daunte Wright got any other brothers and sisters?
Daunte has reportedly six siblings.
His other elder brother, Dallas Bryant, told a crowd during a vigil: "I could never understand that fear of being pulled over by the cops. Why? Because I am a White man. I will never understand it.
"Most of you all have seen the video. I can tell my brother was scared. My brother lost his life because they were trigger-happy.
"You know your right from your left. You know the difference between plastic and metal. We all know it. We know the difference between night and day."
