Witness statement about Ronald Trey Peters Death
A witness said one of the attackers told Peters, “Give me your bag, f*ggot.”
Then, according to the Atlanta Constitution Journal (ACJ), “One of the unidentified suspects shot the victim in the chest with a chrome pistol, then proceeded to shoot him again in the neck after he was on the ground and took his bag.”
The men allegedly fled in a maroon, four-door truck with a third person driving.
Authorities Investigation Reports
Peters was transported to a local hospital and pronounced dead. Police have yet to make any arrests but are continuing to investigate.
Georgia currently has no hate crime laws on its books though the State House recently sent such a bill for consideration in the Senate.
Brittney Griffin-Gilbert, Peters’ college roommate, told the ACJ, “Everyone’s been angry. [His murder has become] more about Pride Month or the fact that he was gay, and not about him as much. I’m more focused on the fact he’s gone, and I don’t have him anymore.”
