Outrage over the death of Rayshard Brooks continued on a rain-soaked Sunday in Georgia’s capital city, with demonstrators returning to the burnt-out shell of the fast-food restaurant where he was shot by a now-fired police officer.

Brooks’ death is the latest of a Black person at the hands of police in a country still reeling from the deaths of George Floyd in Minneapolis and Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky, both of which have sparked nationwide protests against racial inequality and police brutality.

His death was ruled a homicide on Sunday night by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office, caused by two gunshots wounds to the back.
