Brooklyn Center City Council has recommended that the city's police chief be fired, along with the officer who shot Daunte Wright.
At a meeting Monday evening, the council voted to recommend that the new acting city manager fire Chief Tim Gannon and Officer Kim Potter over the fatal shooting of the 20-year-old Sunday afternoon.
The deputy city manager, who has been elevated to the role of acting city manager, will make a decision on whether to fire Gannon and Potter Tuesday, according to CCX Media's Shannon Slatton.
It comes just hours after Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott announced that city manager Curt Boganey had been fired, which followed a 4-1 vote during an emergency council meeting.
The council also voted 3-2 earlier to confer more powers over the police department to the mayor's office.
The city manager holds the power on whether to fire the police chief or any police officers, and Elliott had said that he believes Potter should be relieved of her duties.
Before he was fired, Boganey said that talk of firing the officer was premature and that "employees are entitled to due process."
Gannon now faces potential firing in the wake of Wright's death. On Monday, he said that he believes Potter shot Wright – who was unarmed – when mistakenly pulling out her gun instead of her Taser.
Gannon also left the news conference abruptly – to the confusion of Mayor Elliott and Boganey – before returning a short time later to take more questions.
At the Monday evening meeting, the Brooklyn Center City Council approved a resolution banning its police department from using rubber bullets, tear gas, and kettling as crowd control tactics, as well as chokeholds.
