The community was rocked to its core a few weeks ago when a young man was found dead with a gunshot wound, in the middle of Danforth Road in Southwest Atlanta.
The crime has continued to go unsolved and reportedly there are very few new leads. To help stir up a few leads in the case, the Atlanta Police is conducting a neighborhood canvassing event on Thursday evening to try to acquire some help from the community.
The Atlanta Police department has said that everyone is welcome to join them and community leaders on Thursday and released the following statement.
This is a reminder that the Atlanta Police Homicide Unit is conducting a Tactical Community Neighborhood Canvass for the homicide that occurred at 4198 Danforth Road SW, Atlanta, GA 30331 on August 23, 2012.
The canvass will be performed on 09/20/2012, Thursday at 4:30pm and the field briefing location will be held in an OPEN LOT ACROSS FROM 4160 Danforth Road.
The following units will participate in the canvass; Zone Four Discretionary Unit/CID, C.O.P. Unit, A.P.E.X. Unit, Crime Stoppers Unit, Motors Unit, Mounted Unit, Gangs Unit and Homicide Unit. These Tactical Neighborhood Canvasses have made a significant impact with the open 2011/2012 homicide cases.
There will also be community leaders in attendance.
