Tyler Perry is giving back after Rayshard Brooks' death. During a press conference on Monday, attorney L. Chris Stewart announced that the 50-year-old producer will cover Brooks' funeral costs after he was fatally shot by police in Atlanta, Georgia.

'Lawful but awful': Atlanta police had better options than using lethal force in Rayshard Brooks shooting, experts say

  'Lawful but awful': Atlanta police had better options than using lethal force in Rayshard Brooks shooting, experts say The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office on Sunday said Rayshard Brooks died of two gunshot wounds to his back, ruling his death as a homicide.As the already fiery debate about law enforcement in the U.S. is further fueled by the killing of a Black man fleeing from two white officers in Atlanta on Friday night, a term commonly known in police circles is likely to enter the mainstream — lawful but awful.

"We want to thank him for such a generous move," he added.

Brooks, a 27-year-old black man, was fatally shot by police at a Wendy's drive-thru after officials said he resisted arrest and stole an officer's taser. 

An autopsy found that Brooks suffered two gunshot wounds to his back and he died of organ injuries and blood loss, the Fulton County Medical Examiner said on Sunday. The manner of death was listed as a homicide.

Less than a day after Brooks' death, Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields stepped down from her role. Former Assistant Chief Rodney Bryant, who is black, will serve as the city's interim police chief. 

Additionally, Garrett Rolfe, the officer who fatally shot Brooks, was fired. Devin Brosnan, another officer at the scene, was placed on administrative duty.

Brooks' death has sparked another wave of intense protests against police brutality and racial injustice in Atlanta.
