The shooting of Anthony Frazier, 51, occurred outside a restaurant at 387 Cleveland Ave SW, which is part of a strip mall south of Atlanta featuring stores and restaurants, APD said in a press release.
Security footage released by the department shows the armed suspect – wearing a black, long-sleeve t-shirt, black Nike baseball hat and camouflage backpack – as he approaches walking up to the victim from behind.

The video also shows several people in the area that homicide investigators seek to identify, according to APD. One apparent witness in the video shakes his head as he walks by the scene of the crime later.
