Reward offered in kidnapping case


Briana Jeronta

Atlanta Police are hoping that a $20,000 reward will produce information about the people responsible for kidnapping a couple from their greater Decatur home and murdering them.

Today Crime Stoppers and Atlanta Police announced the reward fund connected to the Aug. 30 incident. An unknown number of suspects jumped Jeronta Brown and Briana Brooks at their home on Colleen Court, located off Columbia Drive south of Memorial. The couple was later found lying in the street, shot in the head. Brown was dead, but Brooks survived. She was seven months pregnant and kept on life support until she could deliver her baby girl, 11 alive reports.
