On February 10, 2021, a 12-year-old David Mack was shot and killed about 100 yards behind 1984 Shirly Street in Utoy Creek. The homicide unit has been actively working leads and crime stoppers calls to get closure for the family in this case. Atlanta Crime Stoppers run by our police foundation has increased the reward amount for information in the case.
On Thursday, February 25, 2021 from 1600hrs to 1730hrs (4pm to 5:30pm) Zone 4 officers and other units will be working with Homicide investigators in the area doing neighborhood canvas. The neighborhood canvas will include giving out information on the crime and who to contact with information. I would like to invite the area community members who would like to help take part in helping to close this case. Basically, all you would be doing is paring up with an officer and or detective and going door to door to speaking with residents. Some residents may not know about this incident and have a small piece of information that could assist the Homicide unit. This will allow community members and the police to team up and work on this case. If you are interested in more information about helping, please feel free to email me at JCantin@atlantaga.gov
