Rockdale County cyclist shot dead

The Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office said they found the 34-year-old near the intersection of Salem Road and Golfview Drive

Investigators haven't explained why he was shot several times from behind. 

They also haven't named a suspect.

Who was Kelvin Battle?

Members of Kelvin Battle don’t want their names used, but said he biked that road often. 

"A lot of people would see Kelvin ride his bike back and forth to work. He does the same routine every day which is to get up, go to work and go home," a family member said. 

When speaking to FOX 5 Atlanta in 2021, relatives were still making sense of their tragedy. 

"It was senseless. I would say just think before you do anything because you don’t know who you've taken away," a family member said.
