Athens-Clarke County police on Monday released photographs and requested the public’s help in identifying a suspect who shot at a car two weeks ago in downtown Athens.

A reward for information that identifies the shooter was also announced by police.

In the Feb. 26 incident, the suspect fired shots from a handgun at a black sedan that was driving on East Clayton Street near College Avenue at about 2:25 a.m. according to police.

The suspect was later picked up by someone driving a white van, police said.

No injuries were reported to have resulted from the shooting.

Detectives believe the driver of the van could have been someone that provided a ride to the shooter, unaware that he was involved in the incident, police said.

It’s OBVIOUS this is all tit for tat gang related crap. The shooting was obviously targeted as compared to just random. It doesn’t matter if he gets arrested, the district attorney won’t prosecute the case. Why even bother?! Commissioner Parker and the mayor will just blame the police for the shooting
