By: The Associated Press, Scripps National

An Atlanta police officer has been fired following the fatal shooting of a black man and a second officer was placed on administrative duty.

The move announced by police early Sunday comes on the heels of the resignation of Atlanta’s police chief following the killing of 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks. Police identified the fired officer as Garrett Rolfe. Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said she doesn’t believe the shooting was justified.
