The Atlanta Police Department requested that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation review a Friday evening incident involving 27-year-old Atlanta resident identified as Rayshard Brooks, who authorities say was shot and killed in a struggle with the police.

Why it matters: Brooks' death comes on the heels of the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis that spurred nationwide protests — some of which turned violent in Atlanta.

The state of play: Footage from the GBI shows that officers were sent to a Wendy's around 10:30 p.m., in response to a complaint of a man in a parked car who had fallen asleep in the drive-thru, and was suspected of driving under the influence. GBI provided the following account:

  • Police administered a sobriety test to Brooks that he reportedly failed. Officers then took him into custody. During the arrest, Brooks resisted and a struggle ensued.
  • The GBI obtained new surveillance footage on Saturday and agents reviewed video that had been shared on social media, revising its initial account, and revealing a physical confrontation between Brooks and the officers, during which Brooks obtained one of the officer's Tasers and started to flee.
  • Officers pursued Brooks on foot and during the chase, he turned and pointed the Taser at the officer. GBI says an officer then shot Brooks.
  • An earlier account of the event was based on the officer's body cam, which was knocked off during the physical struggle, GBI notes.
  • Brooks died in a local hospital after surgery.
  • One officer was treated for an injury sustained during the incident and has since been released from the hospital.

What's next: The officer involved in the shooting has not been identified. A copy of the video is expected to be released, per GBI. After the bureau completes its investigation, it will hand it off to the Fulton County district attorney's office for review, the New York Times reports.

  • Videos posted on social media show a crowd gathered at the Wendy's protesting, per the Times. Gerald Griggs of Atlanta’s NAACP chapter estimated that 150 people were protesting on Saturday afternoon, per AP.
  • Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said that his office had already begun "an intense, independent investigation of the incident" and would not wait for the GBI to finish its probe, AP reports.

Newly released transcripts of bodycam footage from the Minneapolis Police Department show that George Floyd told officers he could not breathe more than 20 times in the moments leading up to his death.

Why it matters: Floyd's killing sparked a national wave of Black Lives Matter protests and an ongoing reckoning over systemic racism in the United States. The transcripts "offer one the most thorough and dramatic accounts" before Floyd's death, The New York Times writes.

Florida smashes single-day record for new coronavirus cases

Data: Covid Tracking Project; Chart: Axios Visuals

Florida reported 15,299 confirmed coronavirus cases on Sunday — a new single-day record for any state, according to its health department.

The big picture: The figure shatters both Florida's previous record of 11,458 new cases and the single-state record of 11,694 set by California last week, according to AP. It also surpasses New York's daily peak of 11,571 new cases in April, and comes just a day after Disney World reopened in Orlando.

Pelosi: Trump is "messing with the health of our children" with push to open schools

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday that Education Secretary Betsy DeVos' aggressive push to fully reopen schools this fall is "malfeasance and dereliction of duty," accusing the Trump administration of "messing with the health of our children."

Why it matters: Trump has demanded that schools reopen as part of his efforts to juice the economy by allowing parents to return to work, despite caution from health officials that little is known about how the virus impacts children.
