Police in College Park have released the name of the tow truck driver who was shot in an armed robbery early Sunday.

The victim was Rashad Bakari Hunter, Lt. Jose. Nevares, watch commander for the College Park Police Department, told the AJC.

Nevares said he could release no other information in the case, which is still under investigation.
