Officers in Brooks shooting turn themselves in

The former Atlanta police officer who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks turned himself in Thursday.

Garrett Rolfe shot Brooks in the back as he was fleeing a Wendy's parking lot over the weekend.

Prosecutors say that Rolfe declared "I got him!" after firing the shots and he did not provide medical attention for two minutes and 12 seconds.

They say he also kicked Brooks after he was shot.

Rolfe was fired and faces felony murder and 10 other charges.

Prosecutors will have to provide proof Rolfe was not in imminent danger when he shot Brooks.

After turning himself in, Rolfe was moved from the jail to a different facility in Atlanta over concerns for his safety.

Rolfe's partner Devin Brosnan turned himself in as well.

Brosnan is facing assault charges in the incident for standing on Brooks' shoulders in the parking lot, which Brosnan denies doing.

He was released on signature bond shortly after turning himself in.

Brosnan is currently on administrative leave.
