Billboards and posters were erected in several spots in metro Atlanta last week, including at 1756 Candler Road in Decatur to press a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the shooters of Patrick Cotrona.

Cotrona, a 33-year-old video game engineer and a Georgia Tech graduate, was shot and killed last May during a robbery as he and his friends walked in the East Atlanta neighborhood where he lived. 

The case has gone cold and Cotrona's family and police hope the renewed attention will generate additional information.

If you have any information regarding this crime, please contact Crime Stoppers Atlanta to provide an anonymous tip at 404.577.TIPS. Donations may be made at https://fundly.com/patrick-cotrona-crime-stoppers-reward-fund.
