President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris each tweeted their support Monday for the family of Daunte 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.
