An Atlanta security guard was brutally murdered outside a restaurant on the city’s southwest side earlier this week.
Investigators say the shooting happened around 7 p.m. Monday at American Wings & Seafood. The victim, identified as 51-year-old Anthony Frazier, was shot in the back of the head.
Surveillance video released to the public shows exactly how the deadly encounter played out.
Mr. Frazier is walking up the sidewalk when the young perp sneaks up from behind him and fatally shoots the older man.
Local patron Kam Kae told WSB-TV that the victim was a standup guy.
“So attentive, he always watched the door. Why would somebody do that to him?” she asked.
“For the most part, they’re very wholesome people, the owners themselves. Usually, they’re always on point, very attentive with orders. I know that they hire security just for their safety as well as the consumers safety. He was a good guy,” she added.
Along with the suspect who was wearing a black Nike ball cap and carrying a camouflage backpack, police want to speak with several witnesses, one of which saw the incident but declined to intervene or administer aid to the victim.
Several others showed up after the shooting and appear to rifle through Mr. Frazier’s clothes. Police put out a photo of all of those involved:
Very hard thing to watch happen, not only the cold-blooded murder of a responsible citizen but the complete indifference to it by those witnesses in the neighborhood. Hopefully, this is not a sign of the times.
