Attorneys for former Brooklyn Center Police Officer Kim Potter want a cutoff date set for any amended charges against her. 

Potter is charged with second-degree manslaughter in the shooting death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright. 

She was a part of a group of officers who pulled Wright over in April during a traffic stop. Potter's body camera video recorded her saying “Taser! Taser!” moments before the shooting.

According to documents filed in Hennepin County Court Wednesday, attorneys for Potter spoke to the Minnesota Attorney General's Office at the beginning of the month and were told they would know within two or three weeks if there would be any change to the charges. However, the defense is saying it has not yet heard back.
