Atlanta PD Shoot Unarmed Black Man Fatally in the Back | Video Released
#AtlantaShooting involved a 27 year old African American man by name Rayshard Brooks, who was shot multiple times in the back by a white cop from the Atlanta Police Department on Friday Night.
According to reports obtained cops got a call that the car in which the man was sleeping was blocking other cars in line. The other customers could still pick up their food— they just had to go around him to the window.
According to the police report, 2 officers tried placing Rayshard Brooks under arrest — after they say he failed field sobriety testing.
As seen in the video, you can see the officers wrestling with Rayshard on the ground for nearly 30 seconds. From the clip Rayshard corresponded quite well in the beginning of the interrogation, until they wanted to cuff him.
When Rayshard stood up, cops say he had taken a taser from one of the officers — the other cop opened fire with his taser, and Rayshard started running away.
Both cops started chasing him from behind … and within seconds 3 shots were fired at Rayhsard.
He was taken to a hospital where he died during surgery.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said one of the Atlanta cop suffered minor injuries. he was treated at the hospital and released.
Several bystanders witnessed the incident and were enraged and yelled at the cops moments after the shooting.
This is reportedly to be the 48th officer-involved in shooting, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has investigated this year.
In another development, ATL Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms just announced the police chief has handed in her resignation — amid demands by the Georgia National Association for the Advancement of Colored People — and the Mayor also is demanding the immediate firing of the officer who fired the 3 shots.

Brooks was shot while fleeing the officers with taser in hand. The G.B.I. official did not initially say Brooks had his back to the cops, but eventually conceded that, though he did say the surveillance video shows Brooks extended his arm holding the taser behind him, somehow pointed toward the cops.

This is #RayshardBrooks, the unarmed, murdered man who some folks would have you believe was a threat to the cops. The most they should’ve done was asked him to leave Wendy’s. There was no reason for anything else.#AtlantaShooting#BlackLivesMatterpic.twitter.com/AZD5umQzmx
