ATLANTA (AP) Atlanta police announced Friday that they had made an arrest in the shooting death of actor Thomas Jefferson Byrd.
Homicide detectives on Wednesday obtained a warrant to arrest Antonio Demetrice Rhynes, 30, for murder based on evidence and public advice, and officers arrested him early Friday morning, the agent Steve Avery in an email.
Rhynes will be taken to Fulton County Jail once he is treated, Avery said. It was not immediately clear whether he had a lawyer who could comment on his arrest.
Police declined to release further information, saying the investigation remained open and active.
In drone footage of the arrest released by Atlanta Police, the camera enters a second floor apartment with a damaged front door. He moves through the living room and the kitchen, then turns to a small hallway.
A man sticks his head through a door and raises his hand, saying something that cannot be heard on the video. He retreats into the doorway and then comes out seconds later wearing red shorts with white stars and no shirt and both hands in the air. He then puts his hands behind his head and walks out of the apartment where he raises both hands again.
Best known for his roles in the Spike Lee films, Byrd was found dead around 1:45 am on October 3 near his home in southwest Atlanta. He had been shot several times in the back. A reward of $ 10,000 had been offered for information leading to an arrest.
Byrd has appeared in films such as Clockers, Chi-Raq, Bamboozled, He Got Game, and Da Sweet Blood of Jesus. Also a stage actor, Byrd was nominated in 2003 for a Tony Award for his performance in the Broadway revival of Ma Raineys Black Bottom, starring Whoopi Goldberg and Charles S. Dutton.
