Atlanta police issue arrest warrants in shooting death of Buckhead valet who tried to stop car break


Atlanta police have issued arrest warrants in connection with the weekend shooting death of a 25-year-old valet attendant in the city's Buckhead area.

Harrison Olvey was identified as the valet attendant shot to death at around 1:40 a.m. Sunday while working at a nightclub on Piedmont Road Northeast. He was attempting to stop a car break-in when he was shot, Atlanta police said, and he died from his injuries shortly after at Grady Memorial Hospital.

Olvey's LinkedIn account showed he was a recent graduate of Kennesaw State University and had been working as a valet in the area for more than four years. A GoFundMe created to assist Olvey's family with end-of-life expenses said he was working as a valet to "make ends meet as he interviewed for full-time positions."

"Harrison always did the right thing and would step in whenever needed. Unfortunately, this act of bravery caused the end of his life," the GoFundMe account read.
