In the wake of demonstrations regarding the fatal shooting of a young man, Atlanta experienced violent outbursts. According to authorities, this individual had initiated an attack on their officers and was consequently shot dead in retaliation.
The crowd of protesters called for an inquiry into the death of the 26-year-old, and their demonstration resulted in a police car destroyed by fire, broken shop windows in town center, plus arrests made by officers. Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens both requested serenity while expecting to get results from the investigation.
