Atlanta police officer who shot Rayshard Books charged with felony murder

The former Atlanta police officer who shot Rayshard Brooks in the back after he resisted arrest and ran off outside a Wendy’s fast-food restaurant will be charged with felony murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to a Georgia district attorney.

Garrett Rolfe, 27, a white officer, was fired within 24 hours of firing his handgun at Brooks, a 27-year-old Black man.

“Mr. Brooks never presented himself as a threat,” said Paul Howard, the local district attorney for Fulton County.
