Stranded motorist killed in Atlanta

A stranded white motorist was killed by a black thug in Atlanta, apparently for the fun of it.

From AJC…

After a martial arts expert and entertainer was shot at killed at the historic Starlight Six Drive-In, a man headed to babysit for a family member was hit and killed by a DeKalb County police officer headed to the homicide scene early Tuesday, police said.

Tuesday afternoon, officers were still searching for the man accused of killing a man that police believe was only asking for help. But it wasn’t clear what prompted the alleged gunman to shoot at the area’s last remaining drive-in.

Mitt Lenix, 28, was at the Starlight, a metro Atlanta landmark on Moreland Avenue, when he apparently was having car trouble and approached 32-year-old Quentric S. Williams for help, Mekka Parish, spokeswoman for DeKalb County police, told the AJC.

Williams shot Lenix and then drove off, Parish said.

An off-duty DeKalb officer working at the drive-in heard the shots and rendered aid to Lenix, who later died after being transported to a hospital, Parish said.

A concerned citizen called 911 after the shooting and followed the suspect’s vehicle until officers caught up with Williams, chasing him nearly to the DeKalb-Gwinnett line on Lilburn-Stone Mountain Road.

The chase ended when Williams wrecked the car, but he jumped out of the vehicle, ran and eluded officers, Parish said. Gwinnett officers assisted in the search for the suspect. A female passenger with Williams was detained, but later released from police custody, Parish said Tuesday afternoon.

Police did not say how they identified Williams as the alleged shooter.
