LaGrange Police are seeking a person of interest in connection with a weekend homicide

LaGrange police are searching for a vehicle in connection with a murder that occurred Sunday in LaGrange near Dawn Drive.


Chris Pritchett, a detective with LaGrange police, said law enforcement are searching for a dark gray Chevrolet Impala that belonged to the victim, DeJerius Hardnett, 20, of Callaway Avenue. The vehicle’s tag number is PRA5337.


Police confirmed that they were looking for a person of interest, but declined to name the individual at this time, citing the on-going investigation. LaGrange Police released a video today on Facebook that shows the suspect, described as an African American male who is 6 feet.


Hardnett died Sunday after an assault that occurred on Dawn Drive near Chip’s Way. He was airlifted by helicopter Sunday to Atlanta’s Grady Memorial Hospital, a major trauma center, but was later pronounced dead.


His death has been ruled a homicide.


Investigators would not say if a weapon was used in the assault.
