Protesters shut down a major highway in Atlanta on Saturday and burned down a Wendy’s restaurant where a black man was shot dead by police as he tried to escape arrest, an incident likely to fuel more nationwide tensions over race and police tactics.

The city’s police chief, Erika Shields, resigned earlier on Saturday over the shooting on Friday night of 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks, which was captured on video.

The police department has fired the officer who allegedly shot and killed Brooks, police spokesman Carlos Campos said late on Saturday.

The Atlanta officer fired after Friday’s incident was identified by the police department as Garrett Rolfe, who joined the department in October 2013.

One thought on “Protesters burn down Wendy’s in Atlanta after police shooting”
  1. Very little has been said about the burning down Wendy’s and rioting. Lets have a trial of ALL on both sides. We cannot bring back a life or a business. This reminds me of the past practice of hanging without a trial.
