Richard Eubanks
606 Tyler Avenue

Eubanks, 65, is a pediatrician. He owns and resides in the home immediately adjacent the victim's residence.

Eubanks said that, during the day on February 20, 2016, he "worked in his yard" until approximately 6:00 p.m., when he went inside to prepare dinner and watch the Atlanta Hawks game on television.

Eubanks said he went outside briefly at approximately 8:15 p.m. and saw nothing out of the ordinary. Eubanks added that he heard his dog bark about 9:00 p.m., but he didn't get up from the TV.

Eubanks said he neither heard nor saw anything of note that night, but added that "the Rib Cage Street Party noise pretty well drowned everything out."

Eubanks also said that he did not know the Pruitts well and that he rarely saw any other cars near the Pruitt residence.
