ATLANTA -

Friends and family gathered on Wednesday to remember a popular Atlanta businessman who was killed in his front yard.

Police say Terry Porter was shot and killed in front of his Westview community home last Monday. His Range Rover was stolen and later recovered, but there have been no arrests in the crime.

Police have released surveillance footage of a man seen driving the stolen vehicle. Authorities said the man in the video is being called a suspect but is wanted for questioning.

Porter owned three assisted living homes and also worked as a real estate broker.

Levi Bias, Porter's brother, said that the slain man was a "pillar in the community" who help the area grow and look nicer.

Porter's family and friends are hoping someone will step forward with information to help police solve the crime.
