ATLANTA (AP) — Federal authorities say a third suspect in the beating of a 20-year-old gay man that was captured in a widely viewed online video likely is hiding in Pennsylvania.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/xaEOyG) reports that authorities say 17-year-old Dareal Damare Williams is in the Erie, Pa., area and FBI agents on Wednesday issued an alert for that portion of western Pennsylvania.

Two suspects — Christopher Cain and Dorian Moragne — have been arrested in connection with the Feb. 4 attack outside a southwest Atlanta store. Federal authorities have been investigating the attack as a possible hate crime because gay slurs are heard in the video as Brandon White was beaten.

White told reporters that he shouldn't have to fear for his life because he's gay.
