2nd victim dies in Atlanta park shooting; child in critical condition

Updates were not provided Monday on the conditions of the other surviving victims, two adult women and a man, but an investigator with the medical examiner’s office told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution at least one was fighting for life in a hospital. It was not clear if any were related to each other.

Any death is a tragedy, Hampton said, but it’s especially unfortunate when children are involved. A city park is no place for gun violence, he said.

“We are just asking the citizens to just find a way to resolve conflict without weapons,” the deputy chief said. “We are just asking people to step away. We are asking people to let bygones be bygones.”

Investigators are still working to determine what prompted the gunfire. It was not immediately clear how many people fired shots, and no suspect information was released.

Police are asking anyone who visited Rosa L. Burney Park on Sunday evening to come forward with information. Hampton said initial reports indicate there were large crowds attending the ballgame and there may be additional witnesses.

Tipsters can call the homicide unit at 404-546-4235 or remain anonymous, and be eligible for rewards of up to $2,000, by contacting Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477, texting information to 274637 or visiting the Crime Stoppers website.

Incident summary:nnThe victims were inside a barbershop for approximately 1.5 hours. There was a dark colored Kia Cadenza sedan and a white Kia Optima sedan that cased the area for approximately 1 hour until the victims exited the barbershop and entered their vehicle. As the victims began to drive south on Peters St, both Kia vehicles followed. When the victim’s vehicle approached a red lighted intersection at Peters St and Chapel St, the dark colored Kia drove along the passenger side of the victim’s vehicle. The driver of the dark colored Kia began to open fire on the victim’s vehicle, striking a three (3) year old child who was sitting in the back seat. The dark colored Kia then fled the scene continuing south on Peters St as the white Kia followed behind. nnInvestigators were able to locate video footage of the suspect vehicles as they cased the area just before following the victims.nnIf you have any information regarding this incident please contact Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta 404-577-TIPS (8477) and you can remain anonymous. There is also a cash reward up to $5,000 for information leading to arrest and indictment.
