Valet attendant killed in Lindbergh area identified by medical examiner

A valet attendant was shot and killed early Sunday after he interrupted a crime in progress, according to Atlanta Police Department.

It happened around 1:40 a.m. Sept. 3 on Piedmont Road near the Longhorn Steakhouse in the Lindbergh area.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner identified the valet attendant as Harrison R. Olvey. Police said previously that he was 25 years old. 

"He encountered some suspects attempting to break into some vehicles, and during that encounter, he was shot by one of the suspects," Homicide Unit Commander Lt. Germain Dearlove told FOX 5.

Police are now looking for a person of interest who they believe is driving a newer model Kia K500 with dark, tinted windows (tag unknown). They are requesting the publics' assistance in identifying the man. The man is considered armed and dangerous.

Less than a week ago, 33-year-old Shadarrian Jacobs was caught in the crossfire when someone confronted car burglars on Spring Street in Midtown Atlanta.

So far Atlanta police believe these two incidents are isolated.

"To have someone lose a loved one is very traumatic," Lt. Dearlove said. "In every case, we are going to have our investigators work through and try to bring justice for the family."

No arrests have been made in either case so far.

Anyone with information on the case or the identity of the person of interest can submit a tip anonymously to the Crime Stoppers Atlanta tip line at 404-577-TIPS (8477), online at, or by texting CSA and the tip to CRIMES (274637).
