The Atlanta Police Department has a person of interest in the killing of Black Gay Pride organizer Durand Robinson, officials confirmed tonight.
Sgt. Curtis Davenport, spokesperson for the APD, said there is a person of interest in the Robinson case. Robinson was found shot to death Aug. 25. WSB-TV reported the news earlier tonight.
"I spoke with Major [Keith] Meadows (Major Crimes Commander). He advises we do have person of interest but are withholding the name at this time," Davenport said in an email tonight.
"No other information will be released at this time. Investigators are diligently working the case," he added.
The person of interest is not in custody as previously reported here.
Mark Winne for WSB-TV reported police were seeking the person of interest as well as a witness to the crime that they would like to speak to.
Robinson was shot and killed in the early morning hours of Aug. 25 in southwest Atlanta. He was found in the middle of the Hadlock Street and police have said the shooting may have resulted from a carjacking.
