The officer who shot 20-year-old Black man Daunte Wright just outside Minneapolis and her police chief are resigning.
Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott announced Officer Kim Potter, the cop who shot Wright, and Police Chief Tim Gannon are both leaving the force. The City Council also voted to relieve the city manager of his duties, which includes overseeing the police department. Elliott says he is appointing two senior commanders to play a critical leadership role in leading the department through this crisis.
Tony Gruenig will be the acting police chief and Garret Flesland will serve as assistant chief.
