Police have arrested a male suspect who they say was a passenger in a car when a woman was fatally shot during rush hour alongside Interstate 20 on Monday.
Tyana Boyd, 25, of Atlanta, was shot once in her car on the shoulder of I-20W near I-285 south. Boyd was transported to Grady Memorial hospital in downtown Atlanta, where she was pronounced dead.
Corey Jones, 28, Boyd’s passenger, was taken into custody and charged with murder and aggravated assault late Monday night, WSB TV reports.
Channel 2 Action News reports the shooting happened at about 4 p.m. Monday on I-20 westbound. Police say no bullet holes were found in the car.
Lt. Paul Guerrucci of the Atlanta Police Department said that there were no bullet holes through the vehicle, and it did not appear to be a case of road rage.
According to investigators the victim and the shooter were on the shoulder and outside of the car when the shooting happened.
Police have not determined a motive and the investigation is continuing.
Officers collected evidence just off of the road and later brought in a ballistics dog to hunt for clues.
“We did find some items of extreme evidentiary value in the wood line,” said Guerrucci.
Police also said that they have received information that others may have been involved.
They are asking any witnesses who were driving in the area of I-20 near I-285 Monday afternoon to call and provide information.
