Another Black man shot dead by police in US, protests erupt

Atlanta’s police chief has resigned after the fatal shooting of an African-American man 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 evening, authorities say.

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

The shooting comes as protests against police brutality and racial injustice continue across the United States.

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