U.S. President Joe Biden on Monday said he had spoken to authorities in Minnesota about the fatal police shooting of a 20-year-old Black man in a Minneapolis suburb, adding that federal resources are in the area to help maintain peace and calm.

The shooting on Sunday led to the death of Daunte Wright during a traffic stop in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, not far from where the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former white Minneapolis police officer charged with murdering George Floyd, is taking place.
