Police work to crack case of father's unsolved murder

Crime Stoppers and Atlanta Police have a renewed search for clues in the 2014 murder of a father of two young children, who was gunned down outside his Southwest Atlanta home.

The ordeal happened in June 2014, around 11 a.m. in the 900 block of Washington Street, south of Turner Field; 37-year-old Fredrick Coleman was struck by gunfire multiple times in the leg, and collapsed from his injuries in the front yard of his home.

"To hear his life was taken was very hard for me. My mom passed away in that same house," said sister
Tedlonder Taylor, who grew up in that community with her family. Coleman is survived by his sister and his two young children. "He loved his kids. They were so young," Taylor said.

Taylor and her family have no idea what could have motivated the crime. Police have canvassed the area over the years for new clues, but Taylor said she has not gotten word of breaks in the case.

"I don't know if they're afraid to come forward, but someone knows," Taylor said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (404) 577-TIPS or crimestoppersatlanta.org. People can receive a reward up to $2,000 for information leading to arrests. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
