Authorities are pursuing leads to identify two suspects who went onto the Riverdale High School campus Monday and fatally shot a man.

Riverdale police Chief Todd Spivey on Tuesday identified the victim as 28-year-old Eyton Lemar Edwards. He was found dead when emergency crews responded to the school about 5:25 p.m.

No students or staff were involved or injured in the incident, Clayton County School District spokesman Ronald Jones-Shields told AJC.com.

“The offenders involved were locals that came on campus and were not enrolled in the school district,” he said.

Spivey confirmed police believe they are searching for two people in connection with the deadly shooting. Descriptions of the suspects were not released.
