    US civil rights leader Rev. Al Sharpton spoke at the funeral of Daunte Wright on Thursday, calling the young Black man shot by police during a traffic stop in suburban Minneapolis a prince.

    Sharpton’s eulogy for Wright slain by a police officer in Minnesota included a stinging rebuke of the possibility that Wright was pulled over for having air fresheners dangling from his mirror.

    “You thought he was just some kid with air freshener. He was a prince, and all of Minneapolis has stopped today to honor the prince of Brooklyn Center,” Sharpton told mourners.

    Wright’s mother has said her son called her after being stopped in suburban Brooklyn Center.

    She says he told her he had been pulled over because of the air fresheners.

    Police say he was stopped for expired registration.

    Hundreds of mourners wearing COVID-19 masks packed into Shiloh Temple International Ministries to remember Wright on Thursday.
