A Georgia woman has been charged with murder in the death of a mom trying to protect her 3-year-old son from gunfire.

Kiresa Cooper was arrested Wednesday night and charged with aggravated assault and felony murder in the death Auriel Callaway, WSB-TV 2 reports.

The station says more charges are expected against Cooper. The shooting occurred during a heated argument between two groups of people at an Athens, Georgia apartment complex on Monday night. A stray bullet struck innocent bystander Callaway, who grabbed her 3-year-old son to shield him from the gunfire.

Police say Callaway was three months pregnant when she was killed.

"This all began with kids fighting," Athens-Clarke County Police Chief Cleveland Lee Spruill said during press conference on Thursday. "This reckless act took the life of a young mother in her prime, as well as her unborn child."

Spruill said police tracked down Cooper and arrested her at her Cobb County home.

"I cannot think of a more tragic circumstance than for an innocent young mother to be gunned down in front of her residence while her young child looked on," Spruill said.

    Where is the BLM boogeyman at when you need them? This is tragic and she need to be buried under the prison after her execution.

    Everyone is tooooo violent. It’s out of control. Uneducated and violent. Sad for kids today

  • Karen Brady

    I though that was Kelly Rowland for a quick sec.

  • Gowns. Beautiful Gowns


  • Appplesauce

    Tragic. Ain’t no big mommas no mo to tell them young fools. Kids will fight today and play tomorrow. They need to throw her a$$ under the jailhouse.

  • Bree

    Wow! The woman was pregnant. This is why I run from fights. Growing up in the projects, you see a lot of activity. I have had to run from fights because they almost always ended in gunfire or somebody getting stabbed.

    People are ruthless these days and you can't have an agreement without things getting heated. It is sad that this woman and her baby lost their lives. Her three year old is now without a mother.

    Ignorance is dangerous. Sad part is, no one cares.

  • Bree

    She looks more like Sevyn Streeter to me. I do see the Kelly Rowland resemblance also. But they both look alike.

  • Russiancreme

    This why if I see some mess bouts to pop, I go the complete other way.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    RIP to the deceased.

  • Look@m3

    Since iM not entertaining that last post because I personally don't believe people should be posting it....Ill skip it and move on to this one.
    Now, Kiersa why are you shooting outside around kids???

  • Renee26

    Bullets have no names

    RIP to the victims

  • Bree

    Yes! I say that all the time. I am one to shoot first and ask questions later. But I always run from situations like this. Death is prejudice against race, color, creed, or nationality. This mother sacrificed two lives for her son.

  • WhoKnew

    Was she the shooter?

  • EasyBreezy
  • WutizstillHERE!

    Lord these crazy folks with guns...

  • WhoKnew

    Reminds me of something I read on the Net today. Police in DC are looking for 10 teenagers (boys and girls) between the ages of 13-14 who attacked and viciously beat two men outside as they walked back to the Hilton hotel around 1 am in DC. They plan to charge them as adults when they catch them.

    So glad my single mama didn't play that shyt. You betta have your ass in the house at 9 pm when the damned street lights come on or else.

    Lock them up now and hopefully these no account truants will have learned their lesson if or when they get out and will amount to something.

  • Renee26

    Probably without a second thought because good mothers instinctively protect their babies

  • GAPeach

    Look at this heffa up here smiling in her mugshot.

    Do all these comments somehow give you the impression that her Black life didn't matter? Stupid ass troll.

  • Fire & Ice

    Why is this rat smiling?

  • Bree

    I believe it because I'm not a mother yet, but I am very protective

  • WhoKnew

    ...and if that rat is 27 than I'm 19. That's the oldest looking 27 y/o I've ever seen. Try 47.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

  • Fire & Ice

    You know these boogers always look old. That hard ratchet hood life will age you.

  • Parent

    OMG how tragic is this. That young lady was a beautiful young mother. She died trying to protect her son. Sadly, he won't remember her. This is horrible.

  • angrysolo

    My mama wouldn’t let me out the front nor side door without knowing where and with whom i was going .. then needed a point of contact for each dam near ?
    i thank her now. no telling what i could’ve foundt myself in

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That's' why I blocked him/her a long time ago. Might be a white troll for all we know.

  • Bushbabe

    When a black person takes another life it give others the impression that it dont matter dumb ass.

  • Marlika

    Phawking gutter rat shooting into a crowd with kids. ?????? I hope she gets the death penalty. That’s double homicide, endangering the welfare of children/ minors, etc.?

  • GAPeach

    So what impression do you get when you white folks keep constantly killing one another? You mfers love murder. Blood thirsty bastard. I'm gonna block you, because you ain't worth my time. Your mama shit have swallowed instead of birthing you, because she raised an ain't shit asshole who's life don't matter.

  • GAPeach

    I just blocked him. They coming out like roaches when the lights come on.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • Bushbabe

    You unstable creature you.. you will not question my blackness or I will question why you are still living on a plantation when our ansestors were freed. I guess it the liberal minded in you that accepts that all black people are a monolith and weak minded. I don't need you validation because I am not voting for the party who symbol is the Confederate flag. The welfare state was created for people like you so enjoy ebt queennesha.

  • Junkanoo

    Another senseless loss of life it's an epidemic. It's really a good idea to go inside when a wild unruly crowd is fighting and carrying on just wall away from the drama and get to safety. People like to watch fights too much go inside and watch TV instead.

  • goheadwiththat


  • Libby

    Exactly go inside and get between the walls (not in LV RM or Kitchen) cause when folks starting shooting the bullets go flying and innocence get injured or killed.. I avoid unruly reckless crowds.. Stay safe and make it home to your family ??

  • Li-Wright

    And more black women getting killed; (and white women).

  • Junkanoo

    It's really out of control people don't value life at all people seem to have way more respect for material things but not human life. Am tired of all the gun violence.

  • the guest


  • Junkanoo

    I always put distance between me and unruly reckless crowds in the heat of passion these fools aren't paying attention to innocent bystanders and you never know who's carrying a gun

  • Junkanoo

    It is really horrible the child lost his mom at such a young age and the mom was pregnant she wasn't even involved in this mess just in the wrong place at the wrong time

    My neighbors are white. We brought our home 5 years ago. The day we moved in our neighbors grandson threw eggs all over our new home, cars, driveway etc.
    That day I became enemies with our neighbors after I made that boy clean my house, our cars and our entire driveway until it was dark and I no longer smelled eggs.
    Since that day my children have been forbidden from playing with the neighborhood kids. I have 2 boys they are best friends.
    Kids will have parents fighting and killing over them *see Fear Thy Neighbor*

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Athens. "It's a jungle out there." Why does she have a big dumb smirk on her face? Does she not comprehend the severity of her actions?

  • 2gr8ful

    So she lives in Cobb County and was hanging out in Athens on a Monday night and decides to shoot and run?? Dumb senseless people...these are the same crazy people that show up to work with donuts the next day like nothing ever happened-CRAZY

  • suganspice68

    It would be great to see a 24 hour moratorium on us k1lling each other.
    Maybe if we could do it for 24 hours we could do 48 and so on until sh00ting became passe.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I don't recall being afraid of the police, but very scared of the punishment my momma would hand down.

  • Chicagowise

    There are stupid, violent people all over the world. You can't escape them and you can't reason with them. They're like roaches.

    Exactly! You don’t need to remind a sane minded person about the death penalty. They have no intentions to kill anyone.

  • SpiceGirl
  • Sherice Bell

    Here we go again...pray for them, the devil did it! If we start taking "full" responsibility for the way we conduct ourselves maybe then we won't have to send empty prayers that won't help anyone at this point or put blame on an imaginary evil called the devil! We need to change our mindsets! Realize we can be more than what we are.
