The video shows Lt. Charles Hampton, homicide commander for Atlanta police, narrating security camera footage from a convenience store. He said the surveillance footage shows Green outside of the store right before his brother pulled up to pick him up. He added that it also shows individuals in the store who police believe may have information on the incident or what led up to it.
“This is the last time that we know of that our victim was alive. We’re asking if anyone knows the individuals on this video,” Hampton said. “We’re asking the community to reach out to us so we can further our investigation.”
Hampton said it is unknown if the people shown in the video were involved in any way. Authorities, he added, are currently considering them potential witnesses.
Additional surveillance camera footage shown by police shows someone running to a car that looks like a Hyundai Sonata. Later footage appears to show the same vehicle alongside Melton’s SUV.
