The Atlanta Police Homicide Unit was notified, then responded and began their investigation. During their preliminary investigation, it was determined that Walker got into an argument with a roommate Crawford. That argument escalated into a physical fight and Walker was killed.

The APD Crime Scene Investigative Unit was also dispatched to gather and document evidence for further processing in the continuing investigation.

The Atlanta Police Department is proud of the work done by their officers with patrol and special units, and criminal investigators each day and want to highlight the good work of the Homicide and Fugitive Units to take a suspected dangerous criminal off of the street.

All suspects should be presumed innocent until proven guilty by a court of law.
