Photos released of person of interest in shooting that left 2 dead, 4 injured at Atlanta park

ATLANTA — Atlanta police have released photos of a person of interest involved in a shooting on Sunday that left two people dead and four others injured.

The shooting occurred at the Dunbar Recreational Center inside Rosa L. Burney Park on Windsor Street around 7 p.m. on Sunday.

APD Deputy Chief Charles Hampton Jr. said there was a baseball or softball game occurring when an argument broke out, ending with gunfire.


When they arrived, officers found multiple people shot. Two victims died at Grady Memorial Hospital.

Police said a 6-year-old girl was critically injured in the shooting. The other three victims are stable.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed 31-year-old Rashad Rogers and 33-year-old April Sparks died in the shooting.

““I know that he is a father and his kids are going to miss him so we want to make that this doesn’t happen to any other father or child,” said Kimberly Dukes, a friend of Rogers.
