“Police say that the girl passenger in a car that got off the interstate. The card was headed down University Avenue and stopped by armed protesters near the University and Pryor Road.”
During a press conference, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms stated that the shooting wasn't in the hands of the police officers, it was by the hands of a “coward,” “cowards” who are still on the loose.
Following the death of Rayshard Brooks, a number of protests in the area grew exponentially, which brought difficulty in maintaining peace in the streets— including the barricading of the streets by the protesters.
“They say, Black Lives Matter. You killed one of your own this time. You killed a child,” Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms concluded.
