APD releases video of suspect in Atlanta University Center shooting

The Atlanta Police Department has released video that shows the suspect wanted in the shooting of four people on Tuesday night during a back-to-school block party at Atlanta University Center.

The male seen in the video is wearing a white t-shirt, gray sweat pants, a tan Gucci hat, and gray New Balance sneakers. Anyone with information about the individual should contact CrimeStoppers at (404) 577-TIPS. People with information leading to arrest and indictment are eligible for reward of up to $2,000.

The incident occurred on Aug. 20 shortly after 10:30 p.m. Atlanta police officers responded to a report of multiple people shot on James P. Brawley Drive. On arrival, officers found Clark Atlanta University and Spelman College police rendering aid to three women who had suffered gunshot wounds. The women were transported for treatment of non-life threatening gunshot wounds. A fourth gunshot wound victim, also female, later showed up at Grady hospital for treatment of a non-life threatening gunshot wound. All four women were listed in stable condition.

The women had been attending a block party in front of the Robert W. Woodruff Library at the Clark Atlanta University campus when an unknown shooter opened fire into a crowd of about 200 people. Initial investigation seems to indicate an argument broke out between two parties prior to the shooting. It appears the women were not the intended targets of the shooting. Atlanta Police investigators arrived on scene to interview witnesses. At this time, no arrests have been made. Two of the women are reportedly students at Spelman College and two at Clark Atlanta University.
