Atlanta, Georgia — The Atlanta Police Department and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation have released officer bodycam, dashcam and surveillance video of the events leading up to the fatal shooting of Rayshard Brooks, 27. Brooks was fatally shot by an Atlanta police officer in the parking lot of a Wendy’s off University Avenue Friday night. The shooting led to the resignation of Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields and Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms called for the immediate termination of the officer. The footage shows Officers Garrett Rolfe and Devin Brosnan speaking to Brooks for nearly 30 minutes on suspicion of DUI after apparently finding him asleep behind the wheel of his car in the drive-thru line of a Wendy’s restaurant.

After failing a field sobriety test, officers attempted to place Brooks into custody and a struggled ensued. The APD officer deployed a taser and during the struggle, Brooks grabbed and was in possession of the taser. Footage shows that Brooks has the taser in in his hand, runs a relatively short distance, and then appears to turn around and point the taser at the Atlanta officer. That is when officer reached down and retrieved his weapon from his holster and discharges and fires at Brooks, who goes down.

Garrett Rolfe, the Atlanta police officer who fatally shot Brooks has been terminated, Atlanta Police spokesman Carlos Campos said. Campos also said that the other officer involved in the call, Devin Brosnan, involved in the Rayshard Brooks case has been placed on administrative duty.
