Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams reacted to last night’s shooting outside of a Wendy’s restaurant in Atlanta.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said in a statement, that an Atlanta police officer shot and killed a man at a Wendy's drive-thru Friday night after he resisted arrest and struggled for an officer's Taser.
The GBI identified the slain man as Rayshard Brooks, 27, of Atlanta, who was African American.
Abrams said in her tweet that last night's shooting "demands we severely restrict the use of deadly force.
"The killing of #RayshardBrooks in Atlanta last night demands we severely restrict the use of deadly force. Yes, investigations must be called for - but so too should accountability. Sleeping in a drive-thru must not end in death," Abrams said in a tweet.
