Hollywood actor and producer, Tyler Perry has offered to pay for the funeral expenses of Rayshard Brooks

Brooks is the 27-year-old Black man who was fatally shot by a white Atlanta police officer over the weekend.

“We want to thank and acknowledge Tyler Perry, who we spoke with, who will be taking care of the funeral for the family,” attorney L. Chris Stewart, who represents Brooks’ family, said at a news conference on Monday night.

“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.
