Two more arrested in July 2012 Grant Park slaying

Posted By on Fri, May 3, 2013 at 9:56 AM

Atlanta Police have arrested two additional suspects in connection with last summer's shooting death of David McReynolds in Grant Park.

Quinterious Hogans, 20, and Dedrick Hale, 18, are charged with murder, aggravated assault, and criminal attempt to commit armed robbery, among other crimes, according to an APD statement.

McReyonlds, 54, was reportedly gunned down in front of a vacant house at 799 Hill St. while walking home from a local grocery store he frequented to play the lottery. The day he was killed he allegedly "hit the numbers real big," according to Angela Sheats who lived with the victim, and collected his winnings at the store.

In October 2012, then 22-year-old Andre Byrd was arrested for murder and nine other counts stemming from the incident.

The Grant Park Neighborhood Association, or GPNA, has been an outspoken advocate in the months since the shooting, raising more than $3,000 to fund a series of billboards and offer additional reward money for information about the case.

Last summer, neighbors expressed their disappointment in media coverage about the shooting on the GPNA Facebook page.

"When bartender John Henderson was murdered in 2009, the entire city was outraged. Before the trial that convicted John Henderson's killer, dozens of gang members were arrested by a joint FBI and GBI task force.
It's not likely that Sheila and Arthur Wallace [who lived with McReynolds] can afford to put up billboards in memory of David McReynolds. Publicity related to his death was scant at best; the news reports are already fading."

All three suspects are currently being held in the Fulton County Jail without bond.
