Autopsy Shows Tortuguita, Forest Defender Protesting “Cop City,” Was Shot 57 Times in Police Raid

HeadlineApr 20, 2023

In Georgia, an autopsy by the DeKalb County Medical Examiner has revealed an activist who was fatally shot by Atlanta police in January was struck by at least 57 bullets. Twenty-six-year-old Manuel Esteban Terán, known as Tortuguita, was killed as police raided an encampment of forest protectors opposing the construction of Atlanta’s $90 million police training center dubbed “Cop City.” No officers have been charged over the killing; meanwhile, at least 42 activists arrested while protesting Cop City face state charges of domestic terrorism.
