Killing of Rayshard Brooks

Rayshard Brooks had resisted arrest and wrested a taser from one officer as he wrestled with two police officers and punched one of them. He fled with the taser and a foot chase commenced, and Brooks aimed and fired the stolen Taser at an officer, who then shot Brooks with his sidearm. [3]

Video of the incident went viral on social media. Atlanta Chief of Police Erika Shields resigned the next day, saying she wanted to help rebuild trust in the community. [4]


During the early hours of June 14, 2020, Officer Garrett Wolfe had been fired and another officer, Devin Brosnan, had been placed on administrative duty. [3] An estimated 150 protesters marched outside the Wendy’s restaurant outside where Rayshard Brooks was shot. [5]
