The Minnesota officer involved in the shooting of Daunte Wright has resigned along with BCPD Chief Tim Gannon.
Penning a letter to city officials, Brooklyn Center Police Officer Kim Potter wrote the following:
Dear Mayor Elliott, Mr. Edwards and Chief Gannon:
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.
Officer Kim Potter
Earlier today, it was confirmed that Potter was no longer with the agency.
According to KSTP, the resignations came days after Wright was killed during a traffic stop when Potter mistakenly deployed her sidearm instead of her Taser.
