Secoriea Turner was in a car with her mother and a friend of her mother’s on the night of July 5 when her mother tried to drive through illegal barricades near the south Atlanta Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was killed by a police officer on June 12, as CrimeOnline previously reported.

Turner’s mother was reportedly trying to turn into a parking lot when a group of armed people blocked the entrance. The suspects fired into the car, mortally wounding the little girl, who was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Ongoing protests have continued for weeks at the scene of the police shooting, but protest organizers have insisted the armed men who killed the little girl were not part of their group.

Atlanta police officer Garrett Rolfe is facing 11 charges, including felony murder, after he fatally shot Brooks in the back as Brooks was running from officers. Police had been called to the fast food restaurant on the night of June 12 after Brooks, who is Black, reportedly fell asleep in his vehicle. During a struggle with officers, he took a Taser and ran off before he was shot. As CrimeOnline previously reported, Rolfe is accused of kicking Brooks while he was lying on the ground after the shooting.

Police offering a reward of up to $20,000 for anyone with information leading to an arrest.
