“When the victim, his friends and brother were in the Lanier [parking] lot next to Concentra at 688 Spring, a further altercation developed resulting in the death of the victim, who died in his brothers arms,” Day said.
Day said security cameras “clearly show the perpetrator flashing gang signs and making gestures of hostility.”
He identified the shooter as a black man in his 20s with dreadlocks and wearing a pea jacket. Three other men in the group also were black and in their 20s, the owner said. They and the driver, possibly wearing a plaid shirt, left in a late-2000 model green Toyota Camry, Day told police.
“QUAD security clearly remembers the suspect because the suspect had $4,000 in cash on him when searched for weapons,” Day said in his email to the AJC. “The security officer admonished the suspect to be careful flashing cash.” Day said the man bragged he had a gun in his car and was confident he would not be accosted.”
Police said they were continuing to investigate the killing.
