Atlanta police shoot and kill suspect running away



27-year-old Rayshard Brooks of Atlanta was shot and killed by APD after a recent incident in a Wendys parking lot. Police were called after compaints of Brooks being in the restaurant's drive-thru sleep causing other customers to drive around him. Officers say after a failed sobriety test Brooks resisted arrest and the struggle began. The video shows Brooks stopping officers from tasing him and somehow overpowering the two officers as he makes an attempt to avoid arrest. While running away you can see the two officers begin to chase Brooks when one officer yell "alright you motherfucker" before shooting Brooks 3 times in the back.

Many citizens say they felt Brooks was wrong for resisting arrest but feel that 2 train officers should be able to subdue 1 person or a call for backup before shooting a suspect in the back while he was running away.
