Police Chief Resigns Over Shooting Of Unarmed Person

Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau resigned Friday, just five days after one of the department’s officers shot an unarmed Australian woman who had just dialed 911 to report a possible crime outside her home.

Harteau resigned at the request of Minneapolis Democratic-Farmer Labor Party Mayor Betsy Hodges. “I’ve lost confidence in the chief’s ability to lead us further,” Hodges said in a statement Friday.
