Atlanta police closing in on killer of Black Gay Pride organizer?

However, spokespersons for the APD said today no arrest has been made.

“We continue to investigate this case and are working diligently to bring someone to justice for Mr. Robinson’s murder,” said Carlos Campos, public affairs manager for the APD.

Robinson was shot and killed in the early morning hours of Aug. 25  and found lying in the middle of Hadlock Street in southwest Atlanta.

The person who shot Durand Robinson likely knew him, according to Major Keith Meadows, commander of the Atlanta Police Department’s Major Crimes Section, in an interview last September. Friends and family said Durand Robinson was not gay although he worked heavily within the black LGBT community.

“This had nothing had to do with his sexual orientation. It might have had something to do with past relationships with people. Personal relationships,” Meadows said.

In late December, police said they had a person of interest in the case they were seeking.

According to police, it appears Durand Robinson may have been a victim of a carjacking.

In April, the APD and other family members of Durand Robinson conducted a canvass of the area where he was shot, seeking witnesses or information from people who might know information that would lead to an arrest.

A $4,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest. Call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS. Calls can be made anonymously.
