ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities in Georgia say a suspect who resisted being taken into custody by Atlanta police has been shot and killed.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said it was investigating the shooting that happened at a Wendy’s restaurant late Friday.
Officers were responding to a complaint of a man sleeping in a vehicle parked in the drive-thru.
The man was later identified as 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks of Atlanta.
The GBI said he resisted attempts to be taken into custody after he failed a field sobriety test and a struggle ensued over a Taser.
The GBI said witnesses saw Brooks grab the Taser away from the officer and was then shot.
