According Officer Kim Jones, a man pulled into the DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse/Old Navy parking lot around 6:45 a.m. Shortly after exiting his vehicle, another vehicle approached and a man got out.
That man pointed a gun at the victim’s head and made him lay on the ground according to the responding police officer’s narrative. The man told police that the suspect, after pointing the weapon at him, “racked the gun and a bullet round fell on him.” The victim later picked up the bullet round off the ground.
A friend of the victim, who had arrived prior and was nearby, witnessed this and was told by the armed suspect to “get out of the [expletive] car” and give up his keys. The man, who also had a gun pointed at him, complied and the second suspect who was driving, jumped out of his vehicle and entered the second victim’s vehicle, a white Infiniti M37, and sped off.
first suspect got back into suspects' vehicle, a BMW, and followed. There were no injuries reported.
The first suspect was described as standing approximately 5-foot-10 and weighing between 150 and 170 pounds. He was wearing all black clothing with a black jacket and a hood over his head with a mask that covered his face except around his eyes. He was described as a light-skinned black male and appeared to be between the ages of 18 and 25.
The second suspect was only described as being around 5 foot 10 inches tall and weighing between 150 and 170 pounds.
The suspect’s vehicle was described as a late 90s model BMW 3 series two-door car.
A phone stolen along with the vehicle was later tracked to near the intersection of Fulton and Formwalt streets in southwest Atlanta, where it was found discarded in the street.
