Atlanta police are offering up to $5,000 for any information on a fatal shooting that occurred on June 13 in southwest Atlanta.

According to authorities, the shooting happened on Legacy Drive around 4:15 a.m.

Darius Bottoms and a friend were walking back to their parked vehicle on Legacy Drive Southwest. Once they were inside the vehicle they pulled from the curb and headed to a stop sign. Police say a male walked into the crosswalk at the intersection of Sells Avenue and Legacy Drive.

Bottoms, who was driving, put the car in reverse and at that time multiple shots were fired at the vehicle. Bottoms was struck and killed.

The passenger left the vehicle and ran while shots were being fired in his direction.

A press conference was held on Tuesday regarding an increased reward for the murder case.
