    Video surveillance captured on Sunday shows three masked people robbing an Atlanta restaurant and then shooting the restaurant’s 29-year-old manager.

    During the robbery of Barcelona Wine Bar on Howell Mill Road in Atlanta, manager Chelsea Beller was forced to open a safe upstairs while the other employees were tied up with electrical tape, ajc.com reported. 

    After opening the safe, Beller was shot in the shoulder. She later died at Grady Memorial Hospital.

    Beller's cousin, Brandi Borgwat, said, "Everybody that knew her, loved her," wftv reported.

    In a statement Monday, Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos said that they will award the usual $2,000 Crime Stoppers reward for information that leads to the arrest of the three criminals and $7,000 for information that leads to an indictment.

    "No crime against our citizens, anywhere in the city, is acceptable," Campos said.

    "But the robbery and murder of an innocent restaurant manager doing her job is a terrible crime that has shocked even the most jaded among us here at the Atlanta Police Department," he added.
