Surveillance video shows the suspect walking up to Frazier from behind dressed in a black long sleeve t-shirt with graphics on it, a black ballcap with a Nike logo, and carrying a camouflage backpack. The video appears to show a gun in his right hand.

Police said the suspect shot Frazier from behind as the guard got out of his SUV. After the shooting, the video shows the man going through the guard’s pockets and walking away.


In the video, investigators believe a man sitting on the curb saw and heard what happened. He can be seen shaking his head and walking past Frazier’s body.

The video shows several other people walking past Frazier’s body.

Police said they are asking for the public’s help to identify the suspect and others seen in the video for questioning.

On Wednesday, shots were fired and an Atlanta police officer was injured during the pursuit of a suspect in the exact same area, though police would not say if the two incidents were connected.

Channel 2 Action News spoke with customers at the restaurant Tuesday. One customer told Channel 2′s Larry Spruill that Frazier was at the restaurant every time she would pick up her order.

Kam Kae said he would always say hi and make sure she got to her car safely.

“So attentive, he always watched the door. Why would somebody do that to him?” she asked.
