Man sought in death of mistress' son


Highlights

Calvin Sneed, 51, went to work after the deadly shooting, police said.

He confessed, cleaned out his office and ran, authorities said.


A man unloaded his revolver on his mistress’ son, went to work, cleaned out his desk and ran after confessing to the deadly shooting, Atlanta police said.

Now police say they need your help finding the man, identified by authorities as DeKalb County car salesman Calvin Sneed.

The shooting happened about 10 p.m. Monday in the front yard of a home on Croft Place in northwest Atlanta, police and relatives of the victim told Channel 2 Action News.

According to investigators and witnesses, Gregory Jones confronted Sneed about the way Sneed treated Jones’ mother.

“Calvin reached in his pocket and pulled the revolver out and repeatedly stood over my son and shot him,” Jones’ mother, Antoinette Williams, told Channel 2.

Jones, 30, was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he died Tuesday.

Sneed, 51, went to work at Superior Chevrolet in DeKalb after the shooting, police said.

“And (he said) that he was cleaning his office out because he didn’t want police to come looking for him," Atlanta police Lt. Charles Hampton told Channel 2.

Sneed is 6 feet, weighs 190 pounds and should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Crime Stoppers. People can leave anonymous tips by calling 404-577-8477 or going online to crimestoppersatlanta.org. A cash reward is available.
