BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn. (WCCO/AP) — As the pressure built to fire the suburban Minneapolis police officer who killed a 20-year-old Black man during an altercation after a traffic stop, the officer Tuesday morning said she would resign from her position effective immediately. Similarly, the chief of the city’s police department also tendered his resignation, according to the city’s mayor.
Kim Potter’s resignation was announced by Law Enforcement Labor Services, a labor union.
“Due to the ongoing investigation being conducted, Law Enforcement Labor Services is unable to provide any additional information or statements,” the statement from LELS said.
Potter sent a resignation letter to Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliot and other city officials Tuesday.
