“It’s support like that and it’s people who are actually in this community — that love the community, that want healing and families like this to never have to go through something like this — to step forward", he added.

Brooks, a father of four, was killed on Friday night after running away from an altercation with two white officers in the parking lot of a Wendy's restaurant in Atlanta.

An autopsy revealed that Brooks died from two gunshot wounds to the back, and his death was listed as homicide.
