Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has asked for the resignation of Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy.

Mayor Emanuel asked for McCarthy's resignation in the wake of public unrest over the shooting death of 17-year old Laquan McDonald last year.

Widespread protests have gripped the city since murder charges were brought against the officer involved in the McDonald shooting. 

Mayor Emanuel praised McCarthy for his leadership over the tenure of his service as police superintendent; however, he called for "fresh eyes and new leadership" at the Chicago police department.
