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.
