A judge says the former Atlanta police officer who fatally shot Rayshard Brooks can be free on bond while his case is pending.
A judge on Tuesday set a bond of $500,000 for Garrett Rolfe, who faces charges including felony murder in the killing of the 27 year old Black man.
Rolfe fatally shot Brooks in the back when Brooks fired a Taser in his direction while running away after a struggle on June 12.
Rolfe is white.
Felony murder convictions are punishable by a minimum sentence of life in prison.
The shooting happened against the backdrop of demonstrations nationwide over police brutality.
