Three weeks after the death of Daunte Wright, a large crowd gathered Sunday in Brooklyn Center to remember the 20-year-old.

The crowd first held a vigil before Wright's family led the group to the police department to renew their calls for justice.

Former Brooklyn Center police officer Kim Potter was charged with second-degree manslaughter after she shot and killed Wright during a traffic stop on April 11. Investigators say they believe Potter meant to draw her Taser and instead pulled out her sidearm.

Potter is scheduled to be back in court on May 17.
