Atlanta's Police Chief has resigned after the fatal shooting of an African-American who had fallen asleep in his car at a drive-through restaurant.

Rayshard Brooks, 27, was shot by a police officer during a struggle on Friday, authorities say.

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said Erika Shields handed in her resignation on Saturday.

  Protesters gathered in central Atlanta on Saturday to protest after Brooks' death

 

Protesters in Atlanta took to the streets this weekend calling for action following Mr Brooks' death.

People across the US have already been protesting over the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man in police custody.
