ATLANTA — Atlanta police have released photos of a woman they say is responsible for starting the fire that destroyed a Wendy’s Saturday night.
Crime Stoppers of Atlanta is offering a $10,000 reward for information that will lead to arrests. Officials are also looking for information on any other individuals responsible for the arson.
The fire destroyed the fast-food restaurant off University Avenue, where 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks was shot and killed by an Atlanta officer the night before. The investigation into his death is ongoing.
Channel 2 Action News had reporters on the ground covering the protests that started off peaceful before some people took it in a violent direction.
Videos have been circulating around social media of people setting the Wendy’s building on fire, including this one posted on Twitter. (WARNING: Contains some language)
The Wendy’s fire raged for hours and some parts were still smoldering Sunday morning.
