Police have released a video of a car they believe was involved in the July 17 case of a man found shot dead in a burning vehicle in southwest Atlanta.

Atlanta police are asking for help from the public to identify the suspects and the vehicle seen in the video. Investigators believe the person in the car is involved in the shooting of 34-year-old Danzel Mullins, which took place near the 900 block of Cunningham Place, according to a news release.

The 20-second video, which appears to be taken from a doorbell camera in the area of the shooting, shows a blue Nissan hatchback or SUV parked on the street before pulling away. As the Nissan drives away, it slows down next to another car parked on the street. The sound on the video is briefly distorted, and a second car mostly blocked from the camera’s view rams into a red SUV parked behind it, with its tires squealing before coming to rest.
