The ATLANTA D.A. has announced charges filed against the two Atlanta Police Officers involved in the fatal shooting of Rayshard Brooks!
The Fulton County district attorney has issued arrest warrants in the shooting death of Rayshard Brooks.
DA Paul Howard said he is charging Officer Garrett Rolfe with 11 counts including felony murder and aggravated assault, criminal damage to property and violations to his oath of office.
Officer Devin Brosnan is being charged with aggravated assault and two violations of oath of office.
Howard said the DA’s office was able to interview 10 witnesses to the shooting and watch eight videos that recorded the incident. Those videos included surveillance, body cam and personal cellphone video. They also viewed physical evidence including inspecting the crime scene, canvassing the area and examining the Tasers that were used prior to bringing these charges against the officers.
Howard said they concluded from witness statements and the videos that Brooks never presented himself as a threat.
“Even though Mr. Brooks was slightly impaired, his demeanor during this incident was almost jovial,” Howard said. “For 41 minutes and 17 seconds he followed every instruction, he answered the questions. Mr. Brooks never displayed any aggressive behavior during the 41 minutes and 17 seconds.”
