See the jacket Atlanta police hope will lead to suspects in Barcelona killing

Atlanta police hope a distinctive jacket worn by one of the suspects accused of killing a restaurant manager will help identify the trio.

The black “Switch” brand jacket has the number 88 and a black “S” on it, Major Adam Lee said Wednesday afternoon at a press conference. Part of the jacket fabric has a quilt-like pattern.

Investigators found the jacket on Nov. 19, not long after Chelsea Beller was shot at Barcelona Wine Bar on Howell Mill Road. Beller, 29, and other employees were closing the restaurant when three masked men came inside. While the workers were tied up with electrical tape, Beller was led to the office, where she gave the suspects cash from the safe before she was shot. She died from her injuries. 

After the shooting, three suspects carjacked a car which they later abandoned, according to police. Inside the car, investigators found items believed to belong to the suspects.
