Atlanta police released a chilling surveillance video showing the moments before and after a security guard was fatally shot from behind in broad daylight Monday evening.

What are the details?

The security guard — 51-year-old Anthony Frazier — was fatally shot after exiting his SUV around 7 p.m. outside the American Wings and Seafood restaurant on Cleveland Avenue, WSB-TV reported.

Video shows the suspected shooter going through the victim's pockets and then walking away.

After the suspect leaves the area, video shows a man who was sitting on a nearby curb when the shooting took place shaking his head while walking on the road past Frazier's body, which appeared to be face-down on the sidewalk. Investigators believe he saw and heard the fatal shooting, the station said.

Minutes later, three other people are seen walking up to Frazier's body; at least one of them also appears to go through his pockets.

Frazier's wallet, phone, and gun were stolen, WGCL-TV reported.

Police told WSB they're asking for the public's help in identifying the shooting suspect; they also want to identify other individuals seen in the video so they can be questioned, the station added.

'I’m angry and disgusted with the bystanders digging through his pockets'

Frazier's daughter told WGCL she's horrified by the surveillance video and couldn't sleep after seeing it.

“I can’t get the images out of my head,” a tearful Antonette Frazier told the station. “Oh my God, it changed me. They changed the way I feel. It changed the way I looked at things. I just don’t understand how somebody could be so cold."

She's also furious at the bystanders.

“I’m angry at the people that stood by,” Antonette Frazier added to WGCL. “My daddy was a good person. I’m angry and disgusted with the bystanders digging through his pockets.”

Anthony Frazier had been a security guard for less than a month, the station said, adding that his daughter said he was mild-mannered, enjoyed cooking, and loved being a father to his three adult children.

“He was my best friend, and they took him away from me,” she added to WGCL.

Anything else?

The station asked Page Pate — a criminal defense attorney at Pate, Johnson & Church — if people are legally obligated to help injury victims. Pate told WGCL that while Georgia’s Good Samaritan law protects those who help render aid, helping isn't legally required.

“If you simply see someone who’s been injured, even if you watch it happen, there is no affirmative duty to provide assistance in that situation,” he added to the station.

Anyone with information on the identities of those seen in the video should contact 911 or Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or online at www.StopCrimeATL.com, WGCL said. Callers don't have to give their names or any identifying information to be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000 for the arrest and indictment of the suspect, the station added.
