Malecki said investigators believe Reed was one of the men involved in the fight. According to authorities, Reed fired shots from a car as he was leaving the Saks parking lot. At least three shots were fired, and one came into the car Kennedy was riding in, Malecki said. “What we believe right now is we have the sole shooter who killed Kennedy,” he said.ExploreAfter 7-year-old shot, tensions between mayor, councilors spill into the openThe child’s aunt told detectives she heard the gunfire while driving along Peachtree Road near the high-end shopping mall. Moments later, she realized Kennedy had been struck and drove straight to the hospital, where the little girl was rushed into surgery.Reed has had “several cycles” in the criminal justice system, including a previous conviction for forgery, according to Malecki. “This is not the first time this young man has been detained in our area,” Bottoms said.In addition to felony murder, Reed is wanted on charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and reckless conduct. Explore2020 has been a deadly year for youths in metro AtlantaKennedy’s death comes during a particularly deadly year in Atlanta, and less than six months after 8-year-old Secoriea Turner was fatally shot while riding in a car with her mother.Secoriea, a rising third-grader who attended KIPP WAYS Primary School, was shot July 4 near the burned Wendy’s restaurant where Rayshard Brooks had been killed by a police officer a month prior.The car Secoriea was riding in encountered a roadblock an armed group had set up to control who was allowed to pass the restaurant. At some point, shots were fired, and one came through the car and struck the 8-year-old.ExploreParents of Secoriea Turner ask for tipsters to identify her killersA $50,000 reward is offered for information on the fatal shooting, but only one suspect has been charged in the case. Julian Conley, 19, is accused of aggravated assault and felony murder, has said he only witnessed the shooting.Both incidents happened as police and citizens are struggling to stem the spike in violence. With Kennedy’s death, there have been 156 homicides across the city, making 2020 the deadliest year in Atlanta since at least 1998.That year, the Atlanta Police Department investigated 154 deaths, records show. The department investigated 99 homicides in all of 2019.— Please return to AJC.com for updates.”,”websites”:{“ajc”:{“website_section”:{“path”:”/news”,”_website”:”ajc”,”name”:”News”,”_id”:”/news”,”type”:”section”,”version”:”0.6.0″,”primary”:true},”website_url”:”/news/grand-jury-indicts-ex-officer-over-death-of-breonna-taylor/Q4MU3R7WQI4WJWDPKYEHUHCKPA/”}}},{“_id”:”JWHBGSQOWFADXBKXP5NV2QC7VY”,”type”:”text”,”additional_properties”:{“comments”:[],”inline_comments”:[],”_id”:1609248328056},”content”:”Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency worker, was killed in March during a botched drug raid at her Louisville, Kentucky, apartment.
