Wright, a 20-year-old Black man, was fatally shot by a Brooklyn Center, Minnesota police officer during a traffic stop on Sunday. The city’s police chief said the officer, identified as Kim Potter, meant to use her Taser on Wright but accidentally shot him.
The shooting happened just miles from where George Floyd died in police custody. The shooting has sparked protests across the country.
On Tuesday, Potter said she would resign from the police department, effective immediately. Similarly, the chief of the city’s police department also tendered his resignation, according to the city’s mayor.
Potter, a 26-year veteran, sent a one-paragraph letter of resignation to Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliot and other city officials Tuesday. It read:
“I am tendering my resignation from the Brooklyn Center Police Department effective immediately. I have loved every minute of being a police officer and serving this community to the best of my ability, but I believe it is in the best interest of the community, the department, and my fellow officers if I resign immediately.”MORE NEWS: Sacramento Police Officer Justin Shepard Arrested For Alleged Domestic Violence Incident
