Mourners pay respects to Rayshard Brooks at Ebenezer viewing

Mourners pay respects to Rayshard Brooks at Ebenezer viewingMourners filed through Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church on Monday for a public viewing of Rayshard Brooks, a Black man whose fatal shooting by a white police officer came amid growing calls for an end to racial injustice after the death of George Floyd. Latoya Spikes, 40, and her daughter, 12-year-old Morgan Green, arrived more than two hours early and were first in line outside the church where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was once pastor and where Brooks’ funeral is set for Tuesday. About an hour before the four-hour public viewing began, a gold-colored casket carrying Brooks’ body arrived at the church.
