Atlanta police seek person of interest in death of 8-year-old Secoriea Turner, family holds press conference

Georgia News

ATLANTA (AP/WSAV) — Atlanta police released images late Sunday of a person of interest in the fatal shooting of an 8-year-old girl on the Fourth of July.

Authorities are also offering a $20,000 reward for information in the death of Secoriea Turner.

On Monday morning, Secoriea’s family and attorneys held a press conference, pleading for anyone with information to come forward. Watch the full press conference above.

At least two shooters were initially believed to be responsible for her death. Police released a short video of the first person last week, but that person has since been cleared and is no longer a person of interest, an attorney said at the press conference.

Four photos were released Sunday night of the second, now only, person of interest.

The fatal shooting happened near the Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was shot and killed by a police officer.
