Atlanta offers $50K reward in triple shooting case

ATLANTA, GA – In a heart-wrenching incident early Tuesday, Atlanta police are seeking public assistance in solving a triple shooting that claimed the lives of two teenage boys and left an 11-year-old boy injured. A $50,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.

Lamon Freeman, who was supposed to turn 14 on the day of the shooting, and Ja’Kody Davis, 13, were struck by bullets in the Oakland City neighborhood. Ja’Kody’s younger brother, Dontavious Davis, 11, was also shot and is currently in stable condition at a local hospital.

The shooting took place at an apartment complex on Sparks Street SW around 12:36 a.m., where officers responded to reports of juveniles being shot. Upon arrival, they found three young boys with gunshot wounds. Grady EMS pronounced one of the 13-year-olds dead at the scene, while the other died later at the hospital.

Homicide Unit Commander Lt. Andrew Smith stated that the shooting occurred in a stairwell outside individual residences, not inside an apartment. As of now, no motive has been identified, and authorities have not released additional details about the circumstances leading up to the shooting.

With no suspects in custody, Crime Stoppers of Greater Atlanta and the Atlanta Police Department’s Homicide Unit are offering a $50,000 reward for information that could lead to an arrest. Tips can be submitted to Atlanta detectives at 404-546-4235 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS.

The community is encouraged to come forward with any information that could help bring justice to the victims and their families.
