Mystery News has learned that the suspect who was killed at a Walmart in Georgia last week has been identified.
A man identified as Daniel B. L. Jones, 28, was killed early Saturday morning in Georgia.
Investigators say he was armed with a handgun and shot in the head by a suspect who ran from the store.
Jones was a former student at Georgia Southern University.
He had been unemployed and had a job at a construction company, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Jones’ mother, Marjorie L. Bryant, told Fox News on Saturday that she had been in touch with family members who said Jones had been struggling with mental health issues and had attempted suicide before the incident.
The FBI said that Jones was a homeless man who lived on the streets of Atlanta.
The agency said the man’s family told authorities that he had been receiving mental health treatment for several months.
Bryant said that her son was homeless and had been living in a truck that was stolen earlier this year.
She said she had told police that Jones had recently attempted suicide and that his girlfriend was pregnant.
Police identified Jones as the suspect involved in the shooting that killed him at a Georgia Walmart on Saturday.
ABC News reported that police have recovered a pistol believed to have belonged to Jones.
At least three witnesses, including the victim’s mother, said they saw the suspect flee the Walmart and get into an SUV shortly after the shooting.
Authorities said they were searching for the suspect in the area where Jones was shot.
