Interstat75 was blocked by marchers which cause heavy traffic before the police arrived and got things under control.

After the shooting video of 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks was released online the police chief Erika Shields resigned on Saturday. Meanwhile, the officer, Garrett Rolfe, who shot Brook, was fired.

Brook’s death yet fueled the already lit fire by the death of George Floyd.  

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms also accepted the resignation of the police chief and said: “I do not believe that this was a justified use of deadly force and have called for the immediate termination of the officer,”

Brook was supposed to celebrate his daughter’s birthday on Saturday, his lawyer said.

A protest broke out near the scene on Saturday as they demanded the officers to be charged with criminal acts.

Second footage from the restaurant camera shows Brook turning back and aiming the Taser at the policemen following him and at that point one of the policemen opened fire at him.

Brook’s lawyer Chris Stewart said, even though he was pointing a Taser at the Policemen they still can’t shoot somebody unless they are pointing a gun at you.
