DNA evidence obtained from the scene led authorities to Ott, whose DNA was already in a criminal database. In 2014, Ott was convicted of theft by receiving stolen property and eluding police in Rockdale County and spent three months in jail. 

In June 2015, Ott spent eight days in the Fulton County jail for violating terms of his probation, jail records showed. By the end of the year, he was in prison again following a conviction on three counts of entering a vehicle in Clayton County, according to the Department of Corrections. He was on parole following his release.

Bailey was arrested twice in 2015, in February on a charge of theft by receiving stolen property and in August on a charge of burglary, according to DeKalb County jail records. 

Atlanta police have not released a motive on what led to the shooting.
