Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced the city's Police Chief Erika Shields was stepping down Saturday.
This was her decision to step aside as police chief," Bottoms said. "She will remain with the city in a role to be determined ... but she is stepping aside as police chief," the mayor said.
Rodney Bryant will become the interim Chief of Police in Atlanta.
Bottoms also called for the termination of an officer who killed Rayshard Brooks. Brooks was shot and killed at a Wendy’s drive-thru in south Atlanta on Friday night after he resisted arrest and a struggle over an officer’s Taser ensued, according to a statement from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
