Police released surveillance photos and video of the men driving away in a red Nissan Altima, which has possible damage to its front end and windshield.

The victim's family identified the man as 28-year-old Sean Mobley, a father of two. His brother told Pozen their family moved to Atlanta from New Jersey when they were in third grade.


Pozen spoke with witnesses as police investigated the crime scene.

Keairia Webb told Pozen she was out for a night on the town with friends when she heard gunfire near the shopping center.

"You just don’t expect to come out to enjoy yourself have a good night." Webb said. "All of a sudden just gunshots ringing out, there were cars hitting each other. There was an accident right here."

It is the second shooting in a week for Buckhead and it has some neighbors concerned.

"Buckhead is good area and then stuff like this goes on and it makes you think like 'What is really going on? Like I just need to sit at home.'" Webb said.

Police told Pozen that there were officers working security but they weren't able to get the suspects. Anyone with information can contact Crime Stoppers Atlanta tip line at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or online at www.StopCrimeATL.com.
