ATLANTA – Two officers have been charged in the death of Rayshard Brooks, but the investigative body called in to handle the officer-involved shooting says its agents have not completed their work.
In a statement to FOX 5, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation says while it has made “significant progress” in the case, it is still “in the process of conducting this investigation.”
“Our goal in every officer involved shooting case we are requested to review, is to complete a thorough, impartial investigation before we submit the file to the respective District Attorney’s Office,” the statement reads in part.
Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard announced Wednesday his decision to charge former Atlanta Police Officer Garrett Rolfe and Officer Devin Brosnan in Brooks’ killing.
GBI officials said they were not aware of the press conference before it was conducted.
“We were not consulted on the charges filed by the District Attorney. Despite today’s occurrence, the GBI will complete its mission of completing an impartial and thorough investigation of this incident and we will submit the file, once completed, to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office,” the GBI statement continued.
