Live updates: Seattle to end CHOP zone; Rayshard Brooks funeral underway; Trump vows order after Andrew Jackson statue targeted

A private funeral for Rayshard Brooks was being held Tuesday at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. Family attorney L. Chris Stewart announced last week that Tyler Perry would be paying for the funeral costs.

Mourners paid tribute to Brooks at his public viewing Monday at the same church in Atlanta, which was also Martin Luther King Jr.’s church. Meanwhile, the officer charged in connection to Brooks’ death said Tuesday that he “didn’t do anything wrong.”

And after two shootings in Seattle this weekend that left one dead and another person injured, Mayor Jenny Durkan said Monday that the city is working to wind down the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP) zone.
