Councilwoman suggests outsider for police chief

"I've lost confidence in the chief's ability to lead us further", she said.

Harteau, who worked her way up from the bottom of the department to become the city's first female, first openly gay and first Native American police chief, said she was proud of the work she accomplished and honored to serve as chief.

Hodges said she had asked Chief Janee Harteau to step aside "to make way for new leadership". She also said she won't resign.

Australian friends and family gathered on a beach near Ruszczyk's childhood home to honor the 40-year-old yoga teacher and spiritual healer in a silent vigil at dawn on Wednesday.

Harteau on Thursday attempted to distance the police department from the actions of officer Mohamed Noor, who shot the unarmed woman after she made an emergency call to police.

Officer Mohamed Noor, who shot Ms Damond in the abdomen in an upmarket neighbourhood of the city, has refused to be interviewed by investigators, as is his legal right.

About 20 minutes passed after the protesters interrupted Hodges before they left the mayor's office of their own accord, leaving her to continue her address.

Heroes Form Human Chain To Rescue Florida Family Pulled Out To Sea
Most of those who saw the struggling family felt powerless to help them - as it looked like they were too far out to sea to help. A young mother of four was enjoying a day at the beach when she saw two of her boys way out in the water and screaming for help.

"We are in a country where people have guns but. these were two fully trained police officers", she said.

Nancy Coune, administrator of the Lake Harriet Spiritual Community center, places flowers and signs memorializing Justine Damond at a makeshift memorial on July 18, 2017 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Ms Damond's death provoked outrage in her homeland, where Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called it "inexplicable" and "a shocking killing". They were startled by a loud noise and then Ruszczyk approached the driver's side of the auto and Noor, who was on the passenger side, fired his gun through the open driver's side window, according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.

Noor has so far reused to speak with investigators.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said in a news release Friday that the person was bicycling nearby just before the shooting and stopped and watched officers perform CPR on Justine Damond late on July 15. "She is attempting to paint this as an isolated case based on one officer's poor judgment as opposed to a systemic pattern", an activist tells the New York Times. She also spoke about the nomination of Medaria Arradondo as chief. Others, such as Minneapolis mayoral candidate Nekima Levy-Pounds, said Harteau's remarks were rooted in "White supremacy", as she didn't extend the same sympathy to Black victims of police violence, such as Jamar Clark who was shot by police in November of 2015. "The recent incidents do not reflect the training and procedures we've developed as a Department".

The police chief faced criticism over her handling of the tragedy.

Another woman took to the microphone to question why there was no police body camera footage of the shooting. Her fiancé was Don Damond. They drove through an alley near Washburn and Xerxes Avenues with all their car's lights off. Harrity reported being "startled" by a sound coming from near their squad vehicle, the BCA said. But in June, organizers asked law enforcement to minimize their participation due to tensions over a suburban Minneapolis police officer's acquittal in last summer's fatal shooting of black motorist Philando Castile.
