The driver was attempting to enter a parking lot where a group of individuals illegally placed barricades.

Someone in the group opened fire on the vehicle, according to police, striking Secoriea.

Police initially described one of the shooters as a man dressed like a bounty hunter, wearing all black, and the other shooter as a man wearing a white T-shirt.

The new images released by police and Crime Stoppers appear to show another man in a red shirt, blue jeans, and black shoes.

The Atlanta Police Department issued new images of an additional person of interest in the shooting death of 8-year-old Secoriea Turner.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $20,000 reward for anyone with information about the shooting.

“I am asking you to please honor this baby’s life. Please, if you know who did this, please turn them in,” Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said at a press conference. “Enough is enough.”

Along with Secoriea, a 53-year-old man was fatally shot over the holiday weekend and two other people were injured in a shooting near the same Wendy’s.
