Garrett Rolfe (Rayshaud Brooks Shooter) Wiki – Garrett Rolfe (Rayshaud Brooks Shooter) Biography

Garrett Rolfe has been identified as the now-fired Atlanta police officer who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks June 12, according to local TV news station WSB-2. Rolfe has been a member of the Atlanta Police Department for roughly seven years, according to Insider.
Rolfe, along with another officer, were the recipients of a $626 donation towards his education; the promotion was from private personal injury Attorney Ken Nugent, who promised to donate $2 for an officer’s education for every yard that Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan passed for.
Rolfe and another officer, David Bronsan, showed up to the scene of a Wendy’s after receiving a complaint that Rayshard Brooks was sleeping at the drive-thru, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI).
According to Buzzfeed, in one video, a witness said they saw police talking to Brooks for 20 minutes before the shooting:

Education

Garrett Rolfe listed on LinkedIn as a student at Georgia State University.

Career

Rolfe joined the Atlanta Police Department in 2013 after completing the training academy, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

APD’s High-Intensity Traffic Team Uni

Last year, Rolfe was part of the APD’s High-Intensity Traffic Team Unit and won a pin for making 50-99 Driving Under the Influence (DUI) arrests — the same offense for which Brooks was accused of committing.
According to the APD, “The HITT Unit works to reduce the number of traffic-related injuries and deaths in the City of Atlanta, especially involving impaired drivers.”

Awards and Honors

Rolfe and four other officers were honored at the 15th Annual Mothers Against Drunk Driving Golden Shield Honors.
Rolfe was also listed on the Chestney & Sullivan law firm website as part of a grant-funded governor Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic (HEAT) unit.

Fired

The Atlanta Police Department later announced that the officer who shot Brooks was fired before releasing his name — Rolfe was fired the day after the shooting took place and the other officer on the scene, Bronsan, has been placed on administrative leave.
Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields also stepped down and she released a statement:
For more than two decades, I have served alongside some of the finest men and women in the Atlanta Police Department. Out of a deep and abiding love for this City and this department, I offered to step aside as police chief. APD has my full support, and Mayor Bottoms has my support on the future direction of this department. I have faith in the Mayor, and it is time for the city to move forward and build trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve.

Rayshaud Brooks Death in Shooting

The shooting took place around 10:30 p.m. June 12. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation wrote that it has “obtained additional surveillance video from the Wendy’s restaurant. Agents have also reviewed video posted on social media. These new videos indicate that during a physical struggle with officers, Brooks obtained one of the officer’s Tasers and began to flee from the scene. Officers pursued Brooks on foot and during the chase, Brooks turned and pointed the Taser at the officer. The officer fired his weapon, striking Brooks…An earlier account of this incident was based on the officer’s body cam which was knocked off during the physical struggle, preventing the capture of the entire shooting incident.”
Atlanta protesters upset about the police shooting of Rayshard Brooks in a Wendy’s restaurant parking lot breaking windows at the Wendy’s and then starting it on fire.
That action came after a tense day in which the police chief resigned, the mayor called for the officer who shot Brooks to be fired, and the family’s attorneys labeled the death murder.
