SOUTH BEND, Ind. (CNN) – The South Bend, Indiana Police Officer at the center of a fatal shooting is off the force.
Sergeant Ryan O’Neill resigned Monday.
The city’s fraternal order of police announced his resignation as the investigation into the shooting continues.
Eric Logan was killed last month while he was allegedly breaking into cars.
The shooting sparked protests fueled by racial tension between the police department and African American community.
Prosecutors say O’Neill was responding to a report of a person breaking into cars when he confronted Logan. O’Neill said he shot Logan after he refused orders to drop a knife. The shooting wasn’t recorded because O’Neill didn’t turn his body camera on.
Democratic presidential candidate and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg called for greater transparency.
O’Neill’s resignation is effective immediately.
