ATLANTA — Public help is needed by the Atlanta Police Department in identifying a person who they believe is connected to a murder of a man near a MARTA station earlier in May.
Atlanta Police said they responded to a call around 9:28 p.m. on May 5 about shots being fired at 225 Peachtree ST. SW. That's on the Brotherton Transportation Mall at the Garnett Street Marta Station.
When officers arrived, they found a man suffering from a gunshot. Police applied tourniquets and the man, Donald Harrell was taken to the hospital, where he later died.
Detectives still have not provided any information about what could have led up to the shooting.
Anyone with information is asked to submit their tips to Crime stoppers in Greater Atlanta through their online form or over the phone at 1-404-577-8477.
Rewards of up to $2,000 are offered for tips that lead to arrests of individuals on their Wanted list.
