A police officer who “mistakenly” fatally shot a black American two days ago has resigned, along with the police chief in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.
- Duante Wright was shot on Sunday after being pulled over for an expired car registration
- The mayor is yet to accept the resignation of the officer responsible, meaning she could still be fired
- Firing Kim Potter could affect her pension and ability to work in law enforcement elsewhere
Daunte Wright, a 20-year old black man, struggled with police after a traffic stop before being shot dead by Kim Potter, a 26-year veteran of the police force.
Mayor Mike Elliott told reporters they resigned after the city council passed a resolution to dismiss Ms Potter and police chief Tim Gannon.
