According to the Brooklyn Center Police Department, officers pulled a car over for a traffic violation just before 2 p.m. near 63rd Avenue North and Orchard Avenue in Brooklyn Center.

Police say the officers determined the driver had an outstanding warrant, and the driver tried to get back in the vehicle while they were trying to make an arrest.

At that point, an officer then shot the driver, and the car kept driving for several blocks before crashing into another vehicle.

The mother told reporters she was on the phone with her son in the moments before he was shot.

"I heard scuffling, and I heard the police officers say, 'Daunte, don't run,' and then the other officer said, 'Put the phone down' and hung it up," Katie Wright said. "And a minute later, I called and his girlfriend answered that was the passenger and said that he'd been shot, and she put it on the driver's side and my son was laying there lifeless."
