Rally held after officer shoots unarmed man in NC
Demonstrators rallied at the Georgia Capitol on Wednesday in protest of the shooting death of an unarmed man by a Charlotte police officer.
Jonathan Ferrell, a 24-year-old former Florida A&M football player, was shot and killed on Saturday by a police officer in North Carolina.
Ferrell had been in an accident and stumbled from the scene to a nearby home and pounded on the door for help. The frightened homeowner inside called police, who shot Ferrell 10 times when a Taser would not stop him from approaching.
That officer has been arrested and charged with voluntary manslaughter.
