Former Atlanta Police officer Garrett Rolfe, who was charged with the murder of Rayshard Brooks, has been released on a $500,000 bond.

WSB-TV reports Wolfe left Gwinnett County Jail on Tuesday but did not leave out of the main entrance.

Conditions of his bond include wearing an ankle monitor, a curfew from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., surrendering his passport, no possession of firearms, and no contact with any family members of Brooks, witnesses, and other police officers.

Rolfe killed Brooks in a Wendy’s parking lot on June 12 as Brooks attempted to run away with one of the officer’s tasers. Rolfe is facing 11 charges.

The family of Brooks has released a statement following the bond of Rolfe:

“While the family of Rayshard Brooks is disappointed that his killer was granted bond today, they understand that this is just one step in the long quest for justice for Rayshard. Rather than looking at this process as a series of ‘wins’ or ‘losses,’ it’s imperative that we continue to push for systemic change within our criminal justice system. From hate crime laws being passed to increasing oversight of members of law enforcement, our job is to ensure that positive change comes from this tragic situation. We will be diligent in our pursuit of justice for this family and will do everything in our power to make sure that Rayshard Brooks did not lose his life in vain.”
