Police are asking the public to help them identify the person in this sketch that they believe shot and killed a Lithonia man outside a bar two weeks ago.

The altercation took place in the early morning hours of Sept. 15, police said.

“Police were called to the Morgan Falls Billiards Bar at 7875 Roswell Road at 2:17 a.m. and found 36-year old Ellis Alfoncoe Blue in the driver’s seat of his vehicle. His wife was in the passenger seat of the car at the time of the shooting,” Police said in a bulletin sent out to the news media. “The victim and the shooter had an altercation 15 to 20 minutes earlier inside the bar. When the victim and his wife entered their car and began to leave, the suspect walked up on the driver’s side of the car and shot into the driver’s side window several times. The man then fled on foot. Blue was transported to North Fulton Hospital where he died of his wounds.”
