Thanks to an anonymous source who chipped in $8,000, Crime Stoppers is now offering a $10,000 reward for information about two suspects who are wanted in a fatal shooting outside a Buckhead apartment complex.

Police said they’re hopeful the additional funds will encourage anyone with information about Saturday’s shooting to come forward.

Witnesses told officers they saw two men in a car yell, “Get him!” just before the incident, according to police. The vehicle, which was described as blue or gray, fled north on Roswell Road.

“Investigators have not confirmed a motive at this time, but are working to determine the circumstances surrounding the incident,” Grant said Saturday.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers. Information can be sent anonymously to the Crime Stoppers Atlanta tip line at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or online at
