Gay Georgia Man Killed by Masked Gunman Who Used Homophobic Slur

Ronald “Trey” Peters, a 28-year-old gay social worker in Decatur, Georgia, was shot multiple times and killed on his way to work last Tuesday by two men who demanded his bag and used a homophobic slur. The shooting has been labeled hate-motivated.

The AJC reported: ‘The fatal shooting happened about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday. Peters was on his way to the MARTA station before work, his partner told police. Multiple witnesses said that as Peters walked down the roadway, two men got out of a truck and put on masks, the report said. The men told Peters to hand over his bag, a witness said. The incident report indicates one of the men then called Peters an anti-gay slur. “The witness then stated one of the unidentified suspects shot the victim in the chest with a chrome pistol, then proceeded to shoot him again in the neck after he was on the ground and took his bag,” the incident report said.’

According to a witness, the gunman said “Give me your bag, faggot.”
