Late Monday evening, while John A. McCoy was winding down his shift at the Rainbow Club & Casino, Jamar Green and Terrence Bowser planned the rest of their night.
Police said the duo had been drinking Hennessy cognac and eating at the home of Green’s mother.
The longtime friends then “decided that they should go and kill some people,” according to an arrest report.
Just before midnight, McCoy’s 1997 Chevy Lumina reached an intersection on Lone Mountain Road near Decatur Boulevard, where police said Green and Bowser spotted him and pulled alongside his vehicle.
“Green said they sized up McCoy and decided on him for a target,” the report states.
As McCoy continued west on Lone Mountain, Bowser pulled alongside him as if to pass.
“It was at that time Green leveled the shotgun at McCoy and fired,” the report states. Green fired three to four times at McCoy and his vehicle, police said.
Sheriff Bill Young on Wednesday characterized the crime as a gang-related act of random violence, carried out for thrills. At least one of the suspects is a member of the Rolling 60s Crips gang, police said Wednesday.
“It’s purely a thrill kill from our perspective,” Young said.
