The University Avenue Wendy’s went up in flames during a protest over the death of Rayshard Brooks, who was shot fleeing from police. Wendy’s became a target of Black Lives Matter protesters because it is the location where Brooks lost his life. The investigation into what happened when two police officers were called to check on Brooks is ongoing.

The franchise was minority-owned and employed many people from the local Black community in Atlanta.

There has been an investigation into who started the fire at Wendy’s, and the Atlanta Fire Rescue just announced a suspect:

Atlanta Fire Chief Randall Slaughter spoke about the investigation:

“Solving this arson crime has become a top priority for me. The setting of fires is a distraction from the message that the demonstrators and protesters are trying to put forward.”

Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields stepped down after the killing of 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks by the Atlanta police. Brooks was fatally shot by officers in a struggle.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said, “I do not believe that this was a justified use of deadly force and have called for the immediate termination of the officer.”

This sparked a new wave of protests in Atlanta after turbulent demonstrations that followed the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis had simmered down.

Protesters completely blocked off the connector in Atlanta tonight. Both I-75 and I-85 are shut down.
