ATLANTA - Atlanta police are looking for a man who allegedly killed a woman over what he thought was fake money.
Aremtrius Neason is accused of killing 31-year-old Tereasa Carter. They got into an altercation and he shot her over a $100 bill, said Atlanta police Lt. Terry Joyner. The shooting happened in June 2012, but investigators are getting new information, which they hope will lead to Neason's arrest.
Channel 2 Action News rushed to the scene at Myrtle Drive in southwest Atlanta last year. After Carter was shot several times, neighbors tracked down Neason and beat him so badly he ended up in Grady Memorial Hospital. Detectives started working the case to make probable cause, but before police could place charges against Neason, he walked out of the hospital and hadn't been seen since.
The community has been talking since the shooting and Channel 2's Ryan Young learned recently that the fight might have stemmed from a change in the look of the $100 bill.
Young said Neason and his friends were not aware of the change, resulting in Neason killing Carter over what he thought was a fake money. Police hope someone will come forward and shed light on Neason's whereabouts.
Anyone with information about Neason or information related to this case is being asked to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477. Callers can remain anonymous.
