Mayor Betsy Hodges faced the public Friday to announce the resignation of Police Chief Janee Harteau, whose department was responsible for the shooting death of Damond, who had called emergency operators about a suspected sexual assault near her house.
In announcing her resignation, Chief Harteau said she wanted to "let a fresh set of leadership eyes see what more can be done" to improve the police department.
Protesters shouted down Hodges at a press conference Friday night in which she announced she meant to nominate Assistant Police Chief Medaria Arradondo to take over as head of the department, and demanded that she resign.
While speaking to the press, Hodges said her request for Harteau's resignation was not directly linked to, "one particular incident".
Replacing Harteau as chief for the time being is Medaria Arradondo, the mayor's pick for the city's next top cop.
In her statement, Harteau called last Saturday's shooting "a tragic death" and acknowledged the pain it had caused to the community. "We ask that you take your staff with you".
