Deonta Evans, 19, was shot multiple times while riding a bicycle in front of J.E. Brown Middle School, several blocks west of the Georgia Dome near the Vine City neighborhood, on Jan. 13. The shooting was reported about 2:30 p.m, while students were still in class, and the building was temporarily put on lockdown.
A surveillance video released Wednesday shows a man in jeans and a sweatshirt running from the scene shortly after the shooting. Police said Wednesday they were “not ready to say that individual running is the actual suspect,” but added he matches the description of the shooter and they’d like to identify him.
