Rally held after officer shoots unarmed man in NC
More from Atlanta
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.
