#HNNImpact Officer Darren Wilson in Michael Brown shooting resigns.

FERGUSON, Mo. (KABC) --Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson resigned from the department on Saturday, just five days after a grand jury decided not to indict him in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Wilson's attorney announced his resignation. ABC News obtained Wilson's resignation letter:

"I Darren Wilson, hereby resign my commission as a police officer with the City of Ferguson effective immediately. I have been told that my continued employment may put the residents and the police officers of the City of Ferguson at risk, which is a circumstance that I cannot allow. For obvious reasons, I wanted to wait until the grand jury made their decision before I officially made my decision to resign. It was my hope to continue in police work, but the safety of other police officers and the community are of paramount importance to me. It is my hope that my resignation will allow the community to heal. I would like to thank all of my supporters and fellow officers throughout this process.
Darren Wilson"

Wilson had been on administrative leave since the Aug. 9 shooting.
