ATLANTA — An Atlanta city council member is adding $3,000 of her own money to the reward already being offered by Crime Stoppers to help catch the shooter in the August 20 shooting at the Atlanta University Center.

Council member Cleta Winslow’s addition brings the total reward to $5,000 for providing pertinent information toward identifying the shooter.

Four students were shot or grazed during the incident that occurred in the area of the Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library.

“Look into your heart and just say ‘I wouldn’t want that to happen to my child, to my sister, to my niece or any of my loved ones,’” Winslow said.

As a reminder, any information given to the Atlanta Police Department is confidential. 

“Someone knows the shooter and I hope they will come forward very soon to help solve this crime,” Winslow said. “As the council member for District 4 and as a Clark Atlanta Graduate, I am concerned about the safety of our Atlanta University Center students whom I consider as my family.”

Anyone who has information on the shooter can contact Crime Stoppers of Greater Atlanta at 404-577-TIPS.
