APD canvass SW Atlanta neighborhood

Posted: Updated:

Atlanta police hit the streets on Thursday in an attempt to solve a month-old murder case.
Officers with the APD's homicide unit took part in a neighborhood canvass in the area around Danforth Road in southwest Atlanta.

Police say they believe robbery was the motive in last month's murder of Timothy Ashley. The 21-year-old was gunned down walking home from a bus stop.

Detectives believe another robbery that occurred close by may be connected.   

Several members of Ashley's family were at Thursday's canvass.  They said that Ashley was in college and worked part-time at the airport.

Anyone with information on the case is urged to contact the Atlanta Police Department. Investigators have offered a reward for information leading to the capture of two suspects.
