Daunte Wright funeral planned for Thursday after mourners attend Wednesday viewing

The Rev. Al Sharpton is set to deliver the eulogy during the funeral, which will be held at Shiloh Temple International Ministries and is set to begin at noon CT. It was unclear whether the funeral would be a public service, according to FOX 9 of Minneapolis. 

On Wednesday, mourners gathered at Shiloh Temple to view the body of Wright, a 20-year-old Black man. His death sparked protests and riots that coincided with the murder trial of former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin in the May 2020 death of George Floyd.
