“They were running, so they saw exactly what happened,” Hampton said. “We think that more people know what happened.”
Hampton said people in an Audi were fighting with people in a white Cadillac Escalade when gunfire erupted. Shell casings fell to the ground as witnesses ran to hide behind parked cars.

Hayden said his daughter was a properly raised lady, educated and ready to begin a career.
A management trainee with Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Hayden graduated in 2014 with a degree in marketing communications from Prairie View A&M University in Texas.
Her father’s voice beamed when talking about Taylor and her brother, Minnesota state Sen. Jeff Hayden.
“She graduated from college and came to the great city of Atlanta to just see the culture of Atlanta, and she never left,” Peter Hayden said.
His daughter was living in Houston at the time of her death, and had gone to Georgia with friends to celebrate a birthday.
“It was a girls’ weekend,” Peter Hayden said. “They picked Atlanta because it’s a mecca.”
He hopes someone will value her life and come forward without fear of being thought a “snitch.”
“That mentality is more important than a young lady who has affected hundreds of people.”
The young woman had 1,500 people at her funeral and now Hayden simply wants someone who saw something to say something.
“She was a young lady who had the opportunity to live in a way that others would be proud,” Peter Hayden said.
