Atlanta Police Chief Rodney Bryant said investigators are not ready to say yet whether or not the shootings are being considered as a hate crime. "We are still early in this investigation, so we cannot make that determination at this moment," the chief said at a press conference today.
He continued: "Again, we are very early in this investigation. Even though we've made an arrest, there's still a lot more work to be done."
“I know that that's going to be a concern and that you're probably asking that of many of us, we're just not there, as of yet.”
The press conference is ongoing.
