It comes as residents stormed the mayor's office in Minneapolis calling for her resignation less than 24 hours after Minneapolis police chief Jane Harteau resigned in the aftermath of the shooting.
In announcing her resignation, Harteau said she wanted to "let a fresh set of leadership eyes see what more can be done" to improve the police department. Protesters who disrupted the conference demanded Hodges' resignation, though Hodges said that she would not resign.
Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodgesissued a statement on Saturday saying she had lost confidence in Harteau's ability to lead the Minneapolis police force.
"Despite the MPD's many accomplishments under me leadership over these years and my love for the city, I have to put the communities we serve first", Harteau added.
"It is understandable to me that people's frustration is high", she said.

In the calls, a concerned Ms Damond told the operator that she wasn't sure if the woman behind her home was being raped or just having sex.

(Her maiden name was Ruszczyk, but she'd already taken the name of her fiancee, Don Damond.) Justine Damond's family in Australia is now demanding a federal investigation into the shooting.
To help us prevent similar outcomes in the future, we will be implementing updated mandatory training specifically for officers identifying effective tools and tactical strategies with police and dog encounters. "It is inexplicable", Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull told Australian Channel 9's "Today" program Wednesday, in his first public comments since Justine Ruszczyk's death on Saturday.
