A Delta employee who shot and killed a female co-worker near Atlanta’s Hartsfield Airport killed another woman on the same night, police say.
According to WSB-TV, Raeshaun Antonie Jones fatally shot 30-year-old Alexis Nicole Lee Reed in the employee parking lot near Hartsfield-Jackson Internal Airport on Sunday night.
Reed, a below-wing employee, had just finished her shift at the airport when she was ambushed by Jones who lay in wait for her in the parking lot.
Reed attempted to flee when she spotted Jones but she was shot three times, according to WSB-TV. She was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
According to a police report obtained by PEOPLE, College Park police say Jones was a suspect in a separate homicide of a female in Clayton County the same night.
Police found the body of Tyneishia Shelby, 33, at a hotel in Stockbridge, a city southeast of the airport. She was fatally shot, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Jones fatally shot himself when police attempted to stop a car in which he was a passenger in Lovejoy, according to the AJC.
The motive for the killings is unknown but police say Jones knew both women.
“This act of violence was not a random act, but all indications are they were specific in nature,” College Park Police and Clayton County Police said in a report obtained by the AJC.
Reed’s mother Shaunda Shepherd told the AJC that her daughter, who grew up in California, “was a very sweet, hard-working woman of Delta for 10 years. She lived a very simple life and loved life and family.”
Shelby was described as “very loving, bright, caring” on a GoFundMe page launched to help pay for funeral expenses.
