Autopsy Reveals Rayshard Brooks' Death Ruled as a Homicide


The autopsy report in the death of Rayshard Brooks has been completed and the incident has been ruled a homicide.

Police bodycam shows Brooks talking cooperatively with Atlanta police admitting he had been drinking and agreed to do a sobriety test.

The footage later shows Brooks and officers wrestling on the ground over a taser that Brooks pointed at officers, prompting them to shoot him in the back as he ran.

Brooks died at the hospital from gunshot wounds to his back creating organ failure due to blood loss.

Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard told CNN that Brooks did not appear to appear to present any kind of threat to anyone so the fact that it would escalate to his death just seems unreasonable.

The officer who fired the fatal shot has been fired and the other officer is on administrative duty.

A decision on whether to bring charges against him could come around Wednesday.
