MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - Chyna Whitaker, the mother of Daunte Wright's son, expressed her grief over losing her son's father to a deadly police shooting during a press conference Friday.
"I'm just really hurt for my son because he doesn't have his father now," said Chyna Whitaker. "And it's really stressful because I don't really know what to do by myself."
A Brooklyn Center police officer shot and killed Daunte Wright at a traffic stop on Sunday. The officer later resigned and has been charged with second-degree manslaughter.
Chyna and Daunte shared a two-year-old son, Daunte Wright, Jr. While the two were no longer a couple, they were co-parenting their son together.
"100 percent a father, he was a very good dad," said Erica Whitaker, Chyna's mother.

Chyna says the support coming through donations and caring messages are helping her through this dark time.
"It's really amazing, it's really a blessing," said Chyna Whitaker. "I just want my son to be taken care of. I really can't believe this. I just hope everything works out in the end."
Chyna's lawyer, Thomas Bower, said the family has not taken legal action yet, but a lawsuit could be a future possibility.
