WATCH: Video shows moments before woman playing Pokemon Go is shot in NW Atlanta

Police are searching for a man who allegedly shot at a woman while she was playing Pokemon Go in northwest Atlanta last month.

Investigators released new video of the shooting Thursday. In the video, a man with a handgun was shown climbing out of what appears to be a white work van and approaching the victim’s car just out of the frame. After the shooting, the man jumped back into the van and it drove off.

According to Atlanta police, the victim was parked near a dumpster outside the Perry Homes branch of the Atlanta-Fulton County Public Library System on Bolton Road on Dec. 14, playing the mobile video game. Around midnight, she told police a white Ford passenger van pulled up beside her and a man pointed a gun at her. 

“The victim attempts to flee, and the suspect shoots the victim before fleeing the location,” police spokeswoman Officer Lisa Bender said in a statement.

The woman tried to drive away but lost control of her vehicle, and it crashed into some landscaping at the complex. When officers found her, they discovered she was shot in her back. It appeared the bullet went through a rear window and a passenger-side headrest before it hit the woman, according to a police report. 

She was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. Bender confirmed the woman has been released.

“At this time, we are asking anyone who may recognize the suspect or has any information on this incident to contact Crime Stoppers,” Bender said.

She described the alleged shooter as “wearing all black clothing, red and white Nike shoes.” The Ford Econoline-style van he was traveling in has a distinct logo on the front passenger-side door and also on the back left door, the video shows.
