GA Father of Two Murdered in Senseless Road Rage Shooting

A Georgia family mourns the loss of a father after he was senselessly murdered in a road rage shooting last week. He was laid to rest on Thursday morning.

On March 30, 52-Year-old Gerald Tisdale was on the way to visit his children, aged 9 and 12. This is when someone in a black Nissan Altima shot into Tisdale’s Jeep Cherokee. The bullet stuck him, causing him to run off the road, where he died from the gunshot wound.

 

According to police, the Nissan had up to four people in it, and they were reportedly the aggressors which led to an argument and the shooting.

This is such a sad thing, and never should have happened.

WSB-TV reports:

“Right now detectives continue to go through information that we’ve gathered and we know it’s only a matter of time before we’re able to locate this vehicle and the shooter,” DeKalb police Maj. Stephen Fore said.

As Tisdale’s family mourns his death, they, along with police, are asking for help in catching the killer who is still on the run a week later.

“Do the right thing. A family has been hurt. A father has been killed. Friends and neighbors, they’re all searching for answers and we need for those involved to turn themselves in as soon as possible,” Tisdale’s cousin, Gary Burke, said.

Police said everyone who was in the Altima could face murder charges if they don’t speak up before police find them.

“They have the opportunity to come forward, do the right thing and bring this family some closure and separate themselves from this crime. If they remain silent, they could be facing the same murder charges as the shooter in this case,” Fore said.

There is currently a $2,000 reward for information in the case that could lead to an arrest.

I hope they find the SOB who did this.
