A black Atlanta man has died after he was shot by a police officer in Atlanta.

27-year-old Rayshard Brooks, was shot during a struggle and died after surgery at a local hospital, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

According to the Bureau of Investigation, the deceased had been asleep in his car in a Wendy’s drive-thru, causing other customers to drive around the car. Police were dispatched to the drive-thru around 10:30 p.m. and conducted a sobriety test on Brooks, who failed the test, according to the officials.

As seen in the clip recorded at the scene, Brooks resisted arrest and a struggle ensued.

“The officer deployed a Taser. Witnesses report that during the struggle the male subject grabbed and was in possession of the Taser. It has also been reported that the male subject was shot by an officer in the struggle over the Taser,” the Bureau said.

In a video captured by a man from his car, Rayshard is seen struggling on the ground with two police officers over the Taser. As he stood up and started running away, both cops chased him from behind before one of them fired three-times at Rayshard.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation later released a surveillance video which captured the officer who fired three shots to Rayshard’s back until he collapsed to the ground.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog
    and was wondering what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
