Transcript for Officer who shot, killed Daunte Wright and police chief both resign
Now to the latest in the fatal police shooting of daunte Wright. A decision on whether an officer shot him should be charged could come as early as this morning. Stephanie Ramos has the latest. Good morning, Stephanie. Reporter: Michael, good morning. It was another stunning scene out here last night. More people showing up marching through the streets, extra security put in place including the Minnesota National Guard. They're actually still out here this morning in front of the Brooklyn center center police department behind me. The idea that the fatal shooting of 20-year-old daunte Wright was an accident, not comforting this community. Overnight several hundred protesters in the streets of Brooklyn center, Minnesota, for the third night in a row. Demonstrators demanding justice for 20-year-old daunte Wright, who was fatally shot by police officer Kim potter during a traffic stop. Her home in a nearby suburb barricaded and guarded by police, though officials say potter was not inside. Potter, a 26-year veteran on the force and former head of the union representing Brooklyn center officers was training another officer at the time of the killing. She resigned Tuesday writing, I believe it is in the best interest of the community, the department and my fellow officers if I resign immediately. Have you accepted that resignation? As of this moment, no. Reporter: The mayor not ruling out firing potter instead. Brooklyn center's police chief Tim Gannon also submitting his resignation Tuesday. Police releasing this body camera footage a day after the shooting. I'll tase you. I'll tase you. Taser, taser, taser. Oh, my . I just shot him. Reporter: Police say the video shows potter discharging her gun instead of a taser but questions remain how this fatal mistake could even be made. There is a reason why tasers are a different size, why the handle is different. Reporter: Now the young father's family demanding action. Protect and serve. Put her in jail like they would do any one of us. Reporter: The mayor telling me it will take a lot of changes before this community can trust the police. As for today we can expect to hear what charges, if any, officer Kim potter will face. Michael. All right, Stephanie, thank you so much for that.
