Details of the Incident

Officers were alerted just before 5:30 a.m. when someone flagged them down in a neighborhood located about 8 miles east of downtown Atlanta. “The scene is still active and ongoing as investigators are working to determine the circumstances surrounding this incident,” Officer T. Griffin said Thursday morning via email. Lt. Andrew Smith informed local authorities that the body was initially found under Interstate 285 by a movie production crew.

Multiple Gunshot Wounds Confirmed

Upon arrival at the scene, officers discovered an unresponsive woman suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Paramedics and homicide detectives quickly arrived, and EMS pronounced the woman dead. The preliminary investigation suggests that the victim was at a nearby bus stop with the suspect before she was shot. As of Thursday, the suspect remained at large, and a motive for the shooting was still under investigation, according to Officer Griffin.

Identity of Victim Pending

The victim’s identity was not immediately known on Thursday. Officials are waiting for a medical examiner to determine the woman’s official cause of death and confirm her identity. The investigation continues as police work to piece together the events leading up to the tragic discovery. The Atlanta Police Department has ramped up efforts to gather evidence and secure the area where the body was found. Investigators are combing through the scene for any clues that could lead to the suspect’s identification and capture. They are also reviewing nearby surveillance footage and interviewing potential witnesses who might have seen or heard anything unusual in the early hours of Thursday morning.
