“When I ran up to the vehicle there was blood all over,” Hamilton said. “He was moaning.”
Keith Ghant knew the victim and described him as an office furniture installer.
“He would give the clothes off his back to anyone,” Ghant said. “He was one of the nicest people I know.”
Vazquez said it appears to be a brazen crime in the middle of a day on a busy street.
The incident had the street partially blocked just west of the intersection of Marietta Boulevard and Chattahoochee Avenue, causing long traffic delays.
Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477 or The Atlanta Homicide Unit at 404-546-4235.
