Four years after the Standard Bar Murder

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

It is the four-year anniversary of a murder case that cause so much outrage, protest and eventually changes at Atlanta's City Hall.

Monday marks four years since the Standard Bar Murder and death of bartender John Henderson at the hand of notorious gang members.

The parents of John Henderson are still coping with their loss, but say it is extremely difficult this year. Although a jury convicted a man for the murder, they believe another killer is still on the loose.

The 2009 murder of the popular bartender sent shock waves through the Grant Park community. Henderson was closing up the Standard Bar with co-worker Ashley Elder when robbers stormed into the business. One gunman shot John in the leg followed by six more shots.

Police say at least three members of the notorious 30 Deep gang swiped cash. One member then fired shots through an office door killing Henderson.

A jury convicted 17-year-old Jonathan Redding as a co-conspirator in the murder, but prosecutors believe the fatal shot was fired by another gang member.

As another year passes with no further arrests, John's father hopes this senseless crime will trigger someone to come forward. Don Henderson says he and his family have realized that the killer may never be brought to justice, but they are still holding hope that justice will be fully realized in his son's murder.
