Joe Biden, Kamala Harris Tweet Support for Duante Wright’s Family

    President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris each tweeted their support Monday for the family of Duante Wright, the 20-year-old black driver killed after he evaded arrest on an outstanding warrant Sunday in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.

    Brooklyn Center suffered a second night of rioting on Monday — ironically, as the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd continues. Both towns are in Hennepin County; Brooklyn Center is a suburb.

    Biden tweeted earlier:

    Harris followed up:

    Earlier Monday, Biden said there was “no justification” for looting.

    Over the weekend, Biden tweeted that Congress should pass more gun control laws:

    Police stopped Wright for a traffic violation, but attempted to arrest him when they discovered there was a warrant for his arrest for carrying a pistol without a permit.
