ATLANTA -- Investigators say they have issued an arrest warrant for a woman in the burning of a Wendy’s restaurant in Atlanta during protests over the police shooting of Rayshard Brooks.

Atlanta Fire and Rescue said Saturday on Twitter that Natalie White is a suspect in the arson.

The post included surveillance pictures of White in a store, but no additional identifying information.

Authorities say Brooks was shot twice in the back by a police officer charged with murder after he tried to run from officers who were checking on a sleeping person in a car blocking the drive-thru lane.

The Wendy's burned the next day.
