Clayton County authorities have identified two men in a Snapchat video that appears to show them firing semiautomatic weapons out of the window of a moving car.
The video was uploaded to the app Saturday night using a Clayton County filter and shows a driver and a passenger haphazardly fire several shots while driving along a dark road. It has been widely shared on social media since then.
The men were identified as Jonathan Marin and Edgar Reeves, according to the Clayton County sheriff’s office. Reeves is being sought for questioning, while a warrant was issued for Marin’s arrest on a charge of violating his probation.
In a public advisory, a spokesman for Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill called the incident “disturbing” and admonished the men in the video for having “no regard for the safety of others.”
Investigators still don’t know where the shots were fired. Police are asking Clayton County residents to check their property for bullet holes and to report any injuries that may have resulted from the random gunfire.
The sheriff’s office said more charges are expected once the location is pinned down.
It is believed Marin and Reeves are no longer in Clayton County, according to the sheriff’s spokesman. Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at 770-479-4479.
