During an appearance on CNN on Sunday, Howard was asked about whether the officer could claim he shot Brooks because he feared for his life.

"In the video, we actually get a chance to hear the officer's first statement after the shooting took place," he responded to host Fredericka Whitfield. "And what the officer said is not that his life was saved... he said, 'I got him.'"

In a news release on Sunday, Howard said he hoped to announce a decision on whether to bring charges against the officers on Wednesday.

He said his office was struggling to obtain all of the body camera and dash cam footage from the Atlanta Police Department.

3. Struggling? Why are they 'struggling' to get all of the body and/or dash camera footage? It should

be automatically uploaded or provided automatically in events such as this...I don't understand. This time delay is giving perhaps the wrong impression that time is being provided so recordings can be altered, deleted, etc. It's not a good look.
