ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – The reward has been raised to $25,000 for information in the brutal beating of a gay man. Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed says they have three-suspects already in custody, but police still needs the public help in capturing the other two offenders. Five-men are seen on videotape punching, kicking and throwing a tire at 20-year old Brandon White during a vicious attack which took place in front of a corner store in Southwest Atlanta on February 4th. Mayor Reed is hoping the additional reward money will push people to come forward with more information.
