Potter and Police Chief resignKim Potter, the Minnesota police officer who shot and killed Daunte Wright, announced Tuesday that she had resigned from the force.
"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 the best interest of the community, the department, and my fellow officers if I resign immediately,” Potter said in a letter to Brooklyn Center, Minn., officials.

The city's police chief, Tim Gannon, also resigned Tuesday.

Police officials said that Wright, 20, was pulled over Sunday afternoon for an expired registration when officers observed he also had an object hanging from his rearview mirror. Wright’s mother told reporters at the scene that she received a call from her son telling her that police had pulled him over for having air fresheners dangling from his rearview mirror, which is illegal in Minnesota.
