Listen Mayor Hodges begins to speak, is interrupted by protesters
Listen Mayor Hodges returns after protesters leave
Listen as Minneapolis mayor Betsy Hodges talks about the decision to ask police chief Janee Harteau to resign. We will post the entire press conference shortly.
Protesters disrupted the press conference, and forced Mayor Hodges to leave the podium. She returned some time after protesters left the room.
Hodges released a statement this afternoon, saying, "I've lost confidence in the Chief's ability to lead us further -- and from the many conversations I've had with people around our city, especially this week, it is clear that she has lost the confidence of the people of Minneapolis as well."
