“The biggest break was the day after the homicide that occurred in Clayton County. There was a gang related drive-by-shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee. During that shooting a weapon was dropped on the scene and that is what blew this case wide open,” Schindler said. “We were able to confirm that that weapon was actually used in that homicide.”
Schindler said the Chattanooga shooting ultimately provided a solid link to a national gang ring.
