The people suspected of shooting the child were described as a group of black males. One of the shooters wore all black, dressed like a bounty hunter, according to police. The second wore a white t-shirt. A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction. Tipsters can remain anonymous and still receive a reward. Call 404-577-8477.
Interestingly, neither CBS 46 nor any other news outlet ever identify the affiliation of the protesters. Was it a Black Lives Matter protest? Or was it some other group? One might think that would be important to journalists, especially those of the who-what-when-why-how school. The absence of any reporting on that point strongly suggests that the answer was not useful to any media outlet’s narratives, as most of our media operate from an entirely different school these days.
Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms declared, “Enough is enough,” and told Atlanta that they couldn’t blame this on police:
“We’re fighting the enemy within when we are shooting each other up in our streets,” the mayor said. “You shot and killed a baby. And it wasn’t one shooter, there was at least two shooters,” she said.
Bottoms said she wants people to have the same passion towards ending community violence that they have for police reform.
“We’ve had over 75 shootings in the city over the past several weeks,” Bottoms said. “You can’t blame that on APD [Atlanta Police Department].”
Bottoms said during the press conference that there had been a number of protests in the area where Brooks was killed and challenges with demonstrators closing roads. Saturday night she said she was told that barriers had been put back up.
“An 8-year-old girl was killed last night because her mother was riding down the street,” Bottoms said. “You don’t want someone on the street who would shoot into a car randomly. If you know them, you should turn them in.”
As the riots deescalate, downtown buildings are no longer burning, but a new, more frightening phenomenon is unfolding.
Angry armed mobs are now roaming the streets and engaging innocent Americans.
That’s what happened in Atlanta to a mom, her child, and a family friend who were just looking for a place to park when the armed mob swarmed their car.
Reports are still sketchy, but someone in the crowd opened fire on the car, hitting the 8-year-old girl “multiple times.”
Sadly, she did not make it.
According to police, the child was riding in a car with her mom and an adult friend when car exited the interstate near the intersection of University Avenue and Pryor Road. Police said the driver was attempting to enter the parking lot on the 1200 block of Pryor Road when they were confronted by a group of armed individuals who were blocking the entrance.
Someone in the group began shooting at the car, hitting it multiple times including the shot that hit the child.
The wounded girl was immediately taken to Atlanta Medical Center in a private vehicle, but she did not survive her injuries.
