Police looking for second shooter in attempted shoe robbery

Atlanta Police are looking for a potential second shooter in Saturday’s attempted robbery of 20 people waiting outside Wish boutique in Little Five Points to buy the new LeBron James sneakers. Two black males approached the line of customers waiting outside Wish on Moreland Avenue  just after 5 a.m. One produced a handgun and ordered the customers to “give it up.” A customer waiting in line drew his own handgun from a holster and fired at the would-be robber, striking him multiple times. The robber fled the scene, but collapsed a short distance away and died. The dead suspect was identified as Sandy Ezzard, 36, of Atlanta.

The whereabouts of the second male suspect mentioned in the police report is unknown, but in a media report released this afternoon officials said subsequent to the initial investigation conducted on scene, Atlanta Police Homicide investigators have obtained a video that appears to show a second shooter in this incident. “We are aware of the video and are taking the appropriate steps to follow up on it,” Sgt. Greg Lyon said in the email to local media.
