Police had previously asked for the public’s help to identify four persons of interest who were seen on surveillance video walking nearby where Jenkins was fatally shot.
In a news conference Wednesday afternoon, Atlanta police spokesman Sgt. Michael O'Connor said they have identified all four persons of interest. Bays and Jones were among the four, and police have spoken to the other two but haven't released their names. Those two are not in custody, O'Connor said.
He also said they found a shell casing at the scene, and it matched two shell casings found during a carjacking Monday on Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard.
Officers spotted that stolen vehicle Tuesday. The driver attempted to speed away but wrecked at Mattox Park on the basketball court, O’Connor said.
One suspect was taken into custody, O’Connor said, but the other got away after running onto the MARTA tracks near the Bankhead station, causing service to be briefly suspended.
Atlanta police spokeswoman Stephanie Brown told AJC.com the person taken into custody was released without charges.
O’Connor didn’t identify either of the two suspects in that incident or didn’t say if Bays and Jones were the other two persons of interest seen in the surveillance video.
Bays is considered armed and dangerous, according to police. He’s believed to have changed his hairstyle, O’Connor said.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact authorities.
