THE photos of two persons of interest in connection to the deadly shooting of a 22-year-old at a Georgia shopping center were released by police Monday.
The names of the pair were not released but detectives said they would like to speak with them and are also looking for a gray Honda sedan.
Michael Ezzard was killed in a fatal shooting at the Five Points shopping center in Smyrna on May 16.
Police are hoping any information on the two unidentified individuals could lead to a potential arrest.
“Detectives are looking to speak with two individuals and locate the vehicle they are in,” read a press release from the Smyrna Police Department on Facebook.
“Detectives believe the two individuals pictured may have knowledge of the shooting.”
Surveillance footage of the incident shows the moments leading up to the shooting. Ezzard is seen holding a door open for two women as they all walk out of a store.
According to police, Ezzard chats with the two women for a few moments before a man in a black hooding runs up behind him.
The suspect puts the gun in Ezzard’s face during an altercation before firing the deadly shot.
“He has no regard for anyone,” said the victim’s aunt, Sharinda Ezzard, about the suspect. “He walked through people and done what he did to my nephew with no regard to anyone else. That video hurts. That is a hard video to watch.”
The suspect then got into a gray Honda sedan with license plate CSX9668.
Police are asking that anyone with any information about the two individuals to call 911. The Smyrna Police Department can be reached at 770-434-6666.
Crime Stoppers can also be contacted at 404-577-(TIPS)8477.
