Protesters have taken to the streets of Atlanta for a third weekend after a dramatic 24 hours that saw the death of a black man at the hands of an Atlanta police officer and the resignation of Atlanta’s police chief.
Rayshard Brooks, 27, was shot and killed at a Wendy’s Friday night during a struggle with police after a sobriety check. The GBI said Saturday that it appeared that Brooks got hold of one of the officer’s Tasers and ran from police before turning the weapon on them. Police then shot him.
Channel 2′s Audrey Washington was in downtown Atlanta Saturday night, where some protesters carried signs with Rashard Brooks’ name on them and demanded justice. Protesters congregated at the site where Brooks was killed. Hundreds of people chanted Brooks’ name outside the Wendy’s where the deadly confrontation took place.
