Atlanta police released video of a person of interest in the shooting death of 8-year-old Secoriea Turner on Saturday.
Video footage shows a Black male wearing a white v-neck t-shirt and dark jeans and carrying an AR-15 automatic rifle. The rifle is equipped with a tan bump stock and tan grip.
“I’m confident that somebody knows the name of this man, and with a simple phone call an individual could earn a $20,000 reward being offered through Atlanta CrimeStoppers,” Lieutenant Pete Malecki said on Tuesday.
Malecki said the suspect is one of three males wanted in connection with Secoriea’s murder.
Secoriea was riding in a car with her mother and a male friend on June 12 when she was shot and killed by BLM activists guarding the burned out Wendy’s restaurant where Rayshard Brooks was killed by police in Southwest Atlanta.
Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms lashed out at Secoriea’s killer on Sunday night.
“You cant blame this on a police officer. You can’t say this about criminal justice reform,” Bottoms said. “This is about some people carrying some weapons who shot up a car with an 8-year-old baby in the car for what?!?
“Enough is enough,” Bottoms continued. “If you want people to take us seriously and you don’t want us to lose this movement, we can’t lose each other.”
