NEW YORK - Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren fast-tracked the removal of the city's police chief, suspended a top lawyer and called for a federal investigation Monday into the death of Daniel Prude.

The stunning shake-up comes amid prolonged protests against police and a week after chief Le'Ron Singletary said he would be stepping down at the end of the month as he railed against "outside entities" he claimed were attempting to assail his reputation.

Warren said during a news conference that an initial review of Prude's death revealed a "pervasive problem in the Rochester Police Department."

"One that views everything through the eyes of the badge and not the citizens we serve," she said. "It shows that Mr. Prude's death was not taken as seriously as it should have been by those who reviewed the case throughout city government at every level."
