Rayshard Brooks was remembered at the Atlanta church where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. once preached.

The private funeral for the man who was shot by a police officer was held Tuesday at Ebenezer Baptist Church.

The Rev. Raphael Warnock delivered the eulogy.

Officer Garrett Rolfe shot Brooks in the back after Brooks fired a Taser in his direction while running away after a struggle with officers outside a Wendy's restaurant on June 12.

Rolfe is white. Brooks was Black. King's daughter, the Rev. Bernice King, also delivered remarks at the funeral.
