Daunter Wright was arrested Thursday in the shooting death of Philando Castile at a Minneapolis park.
Wright, 29, is facing charges of first-degree manslaughter and first-class murder in the case, according to the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office.
Walt Disney Co., which owns the Minnesota Vikings, said Wright was a “part-time employee” at the time of the shooting, which occurred in the parking lot of the park.
He was arrested a short time later.
“The safety of our guests and employees is of utmost importance, and the Ramsey police department took immediate action to investigate the circumstances surrounding this tragic shooting,” the company said in a statement.
The park’s manager said the shooting occurred in a public park.
“This is a tragedy and we are in a grieving period, but it’s not over yet,” Robert Echols said.
Walsh said in the statement that Wright had been employed at the park since 2014.
He said he is not in custody and has not been charged with any crime.
He also did not comment on whether Wright had an attorney.
