The killing of Rayshard Brooks

The incident took place in Atlanta, Georgia, the United States of America on June 12, 2020, at around 10 to 10:30 PM. A complaint was received to Atlanta Police Officer Devin Brosnan about a man sleeping in a car blocking a Wendy’s fast-food drive-through lane on the southside of Atlanta. Devin Brosnan responded to a complaint and went to the location, Devin instructed Rayshard to park his car, but according to police officials Brooks was resisting and Brosnan called for backup and Atlanta Police officer Garrett Rolfe, who was on a DUI task force, responded.

Rolfe asked Brooks a few questions, and police gave Brooks a field sobriety test that he failed to answer. Officers tried to arrest Rayshard, but according to the GBI (Georgia Bureau of Investigation), Mr. Brooks resisted and struggled with the officer who was on duty.

Two videos were circulating on social media, the first one confirmed by the GBI, and a second video saw a police officer telling Rayshard to “stop fighting” and “hands off the taser.” Witness reports and video show Brooks wrestling away an officer’s Taser and Rayshard running away as the officers chased him. Surveillance video footage shows Brooks then turning toward Officer Rolfe while running and deploying the stolen taser at Officer Rolfe.

According to witnesses who told GBI investigators that Rayshard Brooks had one of the officer’s stun guns. Brooks and one of the officers ran by the car of an eyewitness who was taking video of the incident, and a second officer ran by, following Brooks. In surveillance video footage, Brooks is seen appearing to point a stun gun at the Atlanta officer. 

“At that point, the Atlanta officer reached down and retrieved his weapon from his holster, discharged it, shot Mr. Brooks there in the parking lot and he laid down,” Reynolds, the GBI director, said at a press conference on Saturday. In the video, an officer was seen hitting Rayshard in the back and buttocks. An eyewitness told GBI that Rayshard was still breathing when he was lying on the ground.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is now investigating the case and will share the results with the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office, which will decide after the investigation whether criminal charges against either officer are warranted or not. An Atlanta police officer identified as Garrett Rolfe, who killed Rayshard, has now been terminated. Rolfe was hired in October 2013 and Devin Brosnan was hired in 2018 Atlanta Police Department Sergeant John Chafee said.
