Cops say new video, sketch connected to shooting outside wedding reception

A new video and a sketch were released Wednesday in connection with a shooting outside a wedding reception at a northeast Atlanta country club. 

The video and sketch show a suspect in a separate carjacking that occurred Friday in Forest Park, Atlanta police Sgt. John Chafee said. 

While details of the carjacking were not available, police said the same vehicle, a white Dodge Charger, was used early Sunday in the armed robbery and shooting that left a man critically injured outside the Capital City Country Club on West Brookhaven Drive and Capital City Lane.

Christian Broder, 34, of Washington, D.C., was standing with a group of wedding guests about 12:15 a.m., waiting for an Uber car service outside the club. They were approached by someone they thought was their driver, police said.

Instead, a passenger exited from the vehicle and demanded their belongings at gunpoint, according to a police report.

The group of four turned over their valuables, but police said Broder was shot in the stomach when he tried to follow the robber and negotiate with him.

Broder was taken to Piedmont Hospital for treatment. He was in intensive care Monday morning. His status was unknown Wednesday afternoon.

At this point, it is unclear if the person of interest in the carjacking is the same man involved in the shooting, Chafee said. 

Witnesses to the shooting told police the gunman was wearing jeans and a gray hooded sweatshirt and drove away in the Dodge Charger.

Crime Stoppers Atlanta has increased the reward to $10,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment in the case, Chafee said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477, text information to 274637 or visit crimestoppersatlanta.org. Tipsters can remain anonymous and be eligible for the reward.
