Police name shooting suspect

NORCROSS - Norcross police have identified the man wanted in connection with Sunday's fatal shooting and said he is considered armed and extremely dangerous.

Police are looking for Antonio Mendoza Infante, 24, in connection with the shooting death of Luis Adrain-Diaz at the Los Laureles Mexican restaurant in Norcross, according to a press release issued by the Norcross Police Department on Friday.

Infante is described as a Hispanic man who is about 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighs 170 pounds. He has brown eyes and black hair. His vehicle is a 1999 white Jeep Grand Cherokee with Georgia tag number AAM-9585.

The homicide investigation began when police responded to reports of a person being shot about 5:10 p.m. Sunday. Police arrived at 6329 Jimmy Carter Blvd. and found Adrain-Diaz, 19, with multiple gunshot wounds. Adrain-Diaz died at the hospital hours later.

While responding to the first call, Norcross police were alerted to another shooting victim at a Dunkin' Donuts just down the road.

The victim at the Dunkin' Donuts had a superficial wound to his calf and was transported to Joan Glancy Memorial Hospital in Duluth. He was released later.

The Norcross Police Department is asking anyone with information on Infante or the vehicle to call Capt. Brian Harry at 770-448-2111, extension 215, or e-mail him at bharr@norcrosspd.com. Anonymous tips can be left by calling the Norcross Police Department TIPS line at 770-448-6457.
