The Atlanta Police Officer who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks has been terminated, Atlanta Police spokesman Carlos Campos tells CNN.
A small group of protesters tonight marched from the Lafayette Square area, near the White House, through downtown Washington D.C. and then onto a highway that runs from the city to Northern Virginia.
The demonstrators could be seen on video from CNN affiliate WJLA marching out of DC, using both the incoming and outgoing lanes of highway Interstate 395.
The group was peaceful and music blared as they marched. At one point, protesters and medics kneeled on the highway.
Police cars were seen following the protesters from a distance, but demonstrators were allowed to continue on their way.
A separate group of protesters did a similar thing on the same highway, slightly further north.
There were a few protests in DC throughout Saturday, but they did not draw major crowds.
The Atlanta Fire Department is standing by, waiting to safely access the fire burning at the Wendy’s restaurant where a black man was shot dead on Friday night.
"#Atlanta Fire units are standing by until they can safely get to the fire burning at Wendy’s (125 University Ave). Restaurant is fully involved and adjacent to a gas station. No reports of anyone inside the location," the Atlanta Fire Department tweeted.
A group of protesters has gathered outside the Atlanta Police 3rd Precinct near Grant Park, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
A rally in support of the Black Lives Matter movement took place in Taiwan on Saturday, local time.
The organizers also used the march to bring attention to discrimination happening within Taiwan against indigenous groups.
Firefighters are not going into the Wendy's restaurant which is on fire, Sgt. Cortez Stafford, Atlanta Fire Rescue's Public Information Officer has said.
Rayshard Brooks was shot by police on Friday near the Wendy's.
Stafford said the fire is in the dinning room and spreading through the drive-thru window.
Protesters are still in the streets and around the Wendy's, making it hard to access the fire. Crews are monitoring the situation to make sure no other structures are impacted, Stafford says.
Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields has released a statement explaining why she stepped down from her role after a black man was shot dead by an officer.
In a statement released Saturday, Shields said:
"For more than two decades, I have served alongside some of the finest men and women in the Atlanta Police Department (APD).
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."
Earlier, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said Shields had offered to step aside. Bottoms said this was Shields' decision, and that she will remain with the city in an undetermined role.
