Atlanta police have announced the second arrest of a suspected shooter at a block party near the Atlanta University Center Library.
What We Know:
- Near the steps of the library around at 10:30 p.m., students were in the crossfire of a group confrontation resulting in four female students being sent to the hospital, Black News Alerts previously reported. The victims were identified as 18-year-old Erin Ennis, 18-year-old Maia Williams-McLaren, 18-year-old Elyse Spencer, and 19-year-old Kia Thomas.
- 21-year-old Isaiah Williams was the first individual to be arrested on attempted murder, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, and other charges, according to AJC.
- 25-year-old Ahmad Coleman was the most recent arrest. He has been charged with murder, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and reckless conduct. Coleman was also accused of allegedly using an assault rifle to shoot an apartment complex on Fulton street in March. He was released May 16 on a $120,000 bond. Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields stated, “This is clearly a dangerous and reckless individual who has no regard for life.”
There is hope and the school is looking into new security measures to deter shootings such as this one.
