A Suspect in Atlanta Hate Crime Identified
One of three Atlanta gang members who allgedly committed a hate crime against a 20-year-old gay man has been identified, the Atlanta Crime Examiner reported.
Federal investigators say Dareal Damare Williams, 17, has fled Georgia, however.
A week after the crime took place, two other men who are believed involved in the attack were caught. Christopher Cain, 19, was arrested and on Feb. 17 Dorian Morange turned himself into the authorities.
FBI agents in Pittsburg, Pa., say that Williams is hiding out in the state and the agency issued an alert earlier this week.
"Williams, a known member of the ’Pittsburgh Jack City Gang’, is believed to be staying with friends and relatives in the Erie Area," officials said. "The "Pittsburgh Jack City Gang" also known as "Jack City 1029" is a violent street gang based out of Atlanta, Georgia."
Brandon White was brutally attacked outside a grocery store in Atlanta’s Pittsburg community. The incident was caught on camera and was uploaded to the Internet, which caused the video to go viral across the web.
The gang members beat White while someone yelled, "No faggots in Jack City." The victim was kicked and punched until he fell to the ground. Another person then dropped a tire on him.
