Maybe the grilling was due diligence, maybe the cops were giving Rayshard Brooks an opportunity to get it together, but in the end, one officer’s decision to shoot the 27-year-old husband and father twice in the back as he fled on foot is another law enforcement fail.
Or the alternative is whether or not he fired the shot simply to capture him or some other reason,” explained Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard.
Additional eyewitness video has emerged on Twitter of the two Atlanta police officers engaged in the Friday night killing at University and Pryor, collecting spent shells before rendering assistance to Brooks as he lay dying in a Wendy’s parking lot.
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms maintains she doesn’t believe the killing was a justified use of force, and Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard says the officer who shot Brooks, Garrett Rolfe could face charges.
Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said Sunday on CNN there are three charges that could apply against former Atlanta Police Officer Garrett Rolfe: Murder, felony murder or aggravated assault.
