Black Lives Matter supporters will rally and march for a fifth consecutive night on Monday, July 11, but are moving their protest north to Buckhead.

The pictured graphic began circulating on social media last night as hundreds marched for a fourth night through the streets of Downtown after rallies in Woodruff and Centennial Park to protest against police-involved shootings of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota.

Tonight’s demonstration is set to begin at 7 p.m. at the Lenox Square MARTA station.

11Alive is reporting that an Atlanta Police officer who fatally shot a car burglary suspect will be terminated from the department after an internal investigation. In June, Derives Rogers was shot and killed by the unnamed officer  as he attempted to drive away from police investigating car break-ins at the Monroe Place apartments in Midtown. After a GBI investigation is complete, the Fulton County District Attorney will determine whether to file charges against the officer.
