Police have identified the gunman accused of shooting a man outside a popular Midtown Atlanta bar in mid-March.

It happened around 2 a.m. March 16 at the Revery Virtual Reality Bar located in the 700 block of Monroe Drive near Ponce De Leon Avenue.

Atlanta Police said Teodros Beyene shot 23-year-old Ezra Whitehead after the two men got into a violent argument. Whitehead was shot four times, and gunshot wounds penetrated his head and his hip, police said. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Police said Beyne then fled the scene.

Family members said Whitehead is an employee of Fellini's Pizza and does not have health insurance. They have set up a fund to help pay for his medical expenses.

Police ask anyone who knows where Beyene is to give them a call.
