Black Man Rayshard Brooks Celebrated Daughter's Birthday Hours Before Police Shot Him In Atlanta

The father of 4 become shot by means of an Atlanta police officer even as fleeing during a battle at a Wendy's force on late Friday night and died at a clinic, according to the Georgia Bureau of research. Brooks had been asleep in his automobile at the power-through, causing different clients to drive around the car, GBI stated.

Police have been dispatched to Wendy's around 10:30 p.M. And performed a sobriety examination on Brooks, who failed the test, then resisted officers' tries to arrest him, in keeping with investigators.

GBI Director Vic Reynolds said Brooks grabbed a Taser from one officer and seemed to point it on the officer as he fled. The officer fired 3 shots.

Family attorney of Brooks,Justin Miller said Brooks took his daughter to get her nails performed and choose up something to eat Friday. Saturday, she put on a special dress for the second one spherical of the massive event, expecting her dad.

Miller revealed on a Saturday news conference that Brooks' daughter still has her birthday clothes on as she awaits the arrival of her dad to come and pick her up to go skating.

He also mentioned that they had a birthday party for his 8-year- old daughter with cupcakes while waiting for what took him so long from coming home.

I believe no one knows how it feels when one's day of joy becomes otherwise. How will the little girl feel in the future when she celebrates her birthday alongside with her father's memorial?

Please let's all drop a comment for the bereaved family.
