Suspect sought in fatal Sandy Springs shooting

Posted: Updated:
SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -

Sandy Springs police have released a composite sketch of a suspected killer.  Police say the man shot and killed a Lithonia man outside Morgan Falls Billiards Bar on Roswell Road earlier this month.
    
Investigators say the victim was shot inside his car. His wife of 17 years, who was also in the car, gave police a description of the gunman.

Police say the victim, Ellis Blue, and the other man had just gotten into an argument, and witnesses told them the man approached Blue's wife and was talking to her.  When they backed out of the parking lot, the man walked up to the driver's side of the car and fired a shot into the car. 

Blue's wife told police she saw glass flying and realized her husband had been hit. 

Investigators say the bar was packed with people when the shooting happened, and they think that someone out there knows exactly who pulled the trigger. 

CrimeStoppers has offered a $2,000 reward in the case.
