The incident happened in Atlanta on Monday (April 18). The footage shows the gunman walking past a witness as he leaves the scene. Sadly, three others come upon Frazier’s lifeless body and they rob him as well. 

“That video was extremely instrumental. That video was incredibly instrumental,” said Lt. Ralph Woolfolk, commander of the Atlanta Police Department’s Homicide Unit, Fox 5 Atlanta reports.

Police received multiple tips through Crime Stoppers of Greater Atlanta once the video was released Tuesday.

As reported by Vlad TV, Stanley Henderson, 31, was arrested on Wednesday in connection with the shooting. He was detained after a brief chase with officers who found him in an “urban encampment” where he may have been living. 

Lt. Woolfolk said, “the Crime Stoppers tips were vital in being able to get a name associated with this individual and our office was able to shore up some of that information and make sure we developed the probable cause to arrest this individual for felony murder and two counts of aggravated assault.”

Henderson has been charged with felony murder and two counts of aggravated assault, according to the report. 

“This is a man who is a husband and a father, he showed up to work at a second job to try to earn some additional money for his family, and he exits his car,” said Lt. Woolfolk of the victim.

“He didn’t deserve this. He didn’t. He was a good guy. He was a good guy. A family man,” said Ramon Frazier, Anthony’s brother.
