Police make arrests in Grant Park murder

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Two arrests have been made in a murder that left an Atlanta community hurt and angry. David McReynolds was shot to death in his Grant Park neighborhood in July.

The shooting death of the longtime Grant Park resident outraged those in the community.

"It affected me very deeply, both because of the proximity of the murder to my house to the senselessness of the crime," said Jackson Faw.

McReynolds, 54, was walking home along Grant Park Place, but never made it.  There were no eyewitnesses and, for months, no leads.

Soon after the crime, McReynolds wife told FOX 5 that the man family members called "Bubba" walked to the store each day for a lottery ticket. She believes word spread that he had hit a big number, and she believes someone followed him from the store.

In October, Atlanta investigators arrested 23-year-old Andre Byrd in connection with the killing, but this community knew there were more suspects out there and raised money for a reward for information.

"The monetary reward loosened lips. I am 100 percent confident of that," Faw said.

The money spurred interest, leads for investigators and eventually more arrests.

Dedrick Hale, 18, and Quinterious Hogans, 20, now face murder, assault and attempted armed robbery charges.

"I've shed a lot of tears for David McReynolds," Faw said.

But now, Faw said he feels sorrow for the families of the young men arrested and accused in the killing, knowing nothing will bring the Vietnam vet who studied the Koran back.

It's unclear if anyone has collected the $4,000 reward.
