The Atlanta Police Department is once again asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in a deadly December shooting.
According to a news release, Dec. 6 at about 1:50 a.m., officers responded to a 911 call about a person being shot at a Chevron gas station at 2050 Sylvan Road in southwest Atlanta. When they arrived, they found an adult male lying dead in the parking lot, and he appeared to have been shot. The victim was later identified as Denard Bell, 43.
“Homicide investigators responded to the scene and began their investigation,” the release stated. “Preliminary information indicates the victim and another male were involved in an altercation that escalated to gunfire. The suspect left the location and has not been located. Investigators are working to determine the identity of the shooter and the circumstances surrounding the incident. At this time, the investigation continues.”
This is the second time the police have requested the public’s help in identifying the suspect, with its first appeal coming three days after the murder occurred. The police have released photos and a video of the suspect. The video, which includes some new footage, can be viewed by visiting https://bit.ly/2NxoiUu.
