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.

An obese woman was saved by two strangers after falling through the ice in a lake says she is being fat shame after a video of her rescue went viral.

The video was uploaded to Facebook by the Macomb County Sheriff's Office. The incident happened on Jan. 27 at 3:20 p.m. Korisa Miller lost her footing and slipped off the dock into the freezing water.

Two fisherman saw her in the water calling for help, but they struggled to lift her out of the water.

Miller took to social media to complain about the comments under the video on Facebook. She wrote that some viewers should be "ashamed" of themselves for mocking her weight.

Some Facebook users mocked her because the men couldn't lift her into the boat because she is too heavy. They also criticized her for ice fishing with no clothes on.

"I know better than to go on the ice when it is not fully frozen over I am not stupid," Miller said. "I did have clothes on. I had a hoodie and a large winter coat on. When they tried pulling me up, my hoodie and coat was choking me so they had to rip it off of me. I did not go fishing in a tank top."

Ari Shaffir's comedy career is circling the drain amid fierce public backlash to his comments about NBA legend Kobe Bryant.

Shaffir's talent agent dropped him, and a NY comedy club cancelled an upcoming show after the comedian made light of Kobe's death.

When the news broke that the former Lakers star died in a helicopter crash on Sunday, Shaffir joked that Kobe died "23 years too late."

Shaffir said Kobe should have died 23 years earlier, a crude reference to the NBA star's scandalous rape case in Colorado in 2003.

After the initial backlash, that included death threats, Shaffir claimed his Twitter account was hacked. When that excuse didn't work, he said he was only joking.

"Every time a beloved celerity dies I post some horrible shit about them. I've been doing it for years now,” he wrote. "I like destroying gods. And right when a famous person dies they're at their most worshipped. So as a response to all the outpouring of sympathy on social media, I post something vile. It's just a joke. I don't really hate any of the people."

He explained that he wasn't aware Kobe's daughter, Gianna, 13, was also on the helicopter when it crashed into a hillside in dense fog. Shaffir said he was just "looking to post some inappropriate jokes” to boost his follow count.

Explaining that he hated the Lakers because they would always "torch" his beloved Charlotte Hornets, Shaffir said he realized his post was inappropriate and he apologized.

"I'm not actually celebrating his death. I'm not actually celebrating any of their deaths. That's just an act."

A New York man who chained his car doors shut and burned his 3-year-old daughter alive inside the car has died from burn injuries eight months later.

Martin Periera waged a bitter custody battle with Cherone Coleman over their daughter, Zoey Pereira. The custody case ended in tragedy on a cold night in May 2019.

Moments before the tragedy, Pereira told Coleman: "You'll never see your daughter again.”

On May 5, Pereira, 39, placed Zoey in her car seat in the back of his 2008 Audi A6 and drove to an intersection in the Springfield Gardens neighborhood of Queens, NY.

Pereira chained the rear doors shut and poured gasoline inside the car. He ignited the gasoline and fled the car. A propane tank in the trunk and 2 gas containers fed the flames.

Little Zoey was burned alive in the back seat of the car. Periera, a construction worker, unwittingly set himself on fire.

He jumped into a nearby pond to put out the flames on his clothes. When paramedics found him hiding behind a tree not far from the burning car, he was stripped down to his underwear and suffering from second- and third-degree burns to 70 percent of his body, according to the NY Post.

Meghan Markle is known for being difficult to work with. Soon after she married Prince Harry in London, some of the Royal Family's longtime staffers departed the Palace in droves.

Now comes word that Meghan, 38, is "actively looking for a manager or agent" for "future projects."

A source tells Us Weekly that the former Suits actress is considering returning to Hollywood after giving up her C-list career to marry Harry in 2018.

Meghan, who is currently living with Harry and their son Archie Harrison in Canada, convinced Harry to "step back" from their royal duties to jumpstart her acting career and "work to become financially independent."

"It can be a manager or an agent, but she's reaching out to people to find someone represent her for future professional projects."

But gossipmongers wonder what happened to Meghan's old agent? She reportedly had a team of agents and publicists? Did they all quit?

Though Netflix expressed interest in Meghan, other studios don't share their excitement. They say Meghan's acting skills are mediocre at best.

American media mogul Oprah Winfrey also declined to work with Meghan, presumably out of respect for Queen Elizabeth. Meghan reportedly took the rejection hard. She gave her first exclusive interview to Ellen Degeneres as a snub to Oprah.

A friend told DailyMail.com that Meghan informed her close friends quitting the royal family is the best thing that could ever happen to Prince Harry. The friend said "it was her love for him that made this possible."

"She said that like her, his spirit was being crushed and she simply couldn't stand to see him suffer anymore," the friend added.

"My girls and I want to thank the millions of people who've shown support and love during this horrific time," the statement read.

"Thank you for all the prayers. We definitely need them. We are completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adoring husband, Kobe -- the amazing father of our children; and my beautiful, sweet Gianna -- a loving, thoughtful, and wonderful daughter, and amazing sister to Natalia, Bianka, and Capri.

"There aren't enough words to describe our pain right now. I take comfort in knowing that Kobe and Gigi both knew that they were so deeply loved. We were so incredibly blessed to have then in our lives. I wish they were here with us forever. They were our beautiful blessings taken from us too soon. I'm not sure what our lives hold beyond today, and it's impossible to imagine life without them. But we wake up each day, trying to keep pushing because Kobe, and our baby girl, Gigi, are shining on us to light the way."

The grieving widow changed her Instagram.com profile photo to this image of Kobe and his Gianna embracing during the 2016 NBA All-Star game in Toronto.

Vanessa shared a link to the foundation she set up, the Mamba Sports Foundation, for public donations "to help support the other families affected by this tragedy.

Also killed in the crash were college baseball coach John Altobelli, 56; his wife, Keri; and their daughter Alyssa Altobelli, who played on the same basketball team with Gianna. Another young basketball player, Payton Chester, was also killed along with her mother, Sarah Chester; and Christina Maurer, a girls basketball coach at Harbor Day School, a private elementary school.

Kobe and Vanessa, 37, met on the set of a music video when she was 16. He was already an NBA superstar when they met. He caused such a commotion when he picked her up from high school that the administration banned him from the school campus. They married when he was 22 and she was 18 in 2001.

Their eldest daughter Natalia, pictured left, was born 2 years later. Vanessa suffered a miscarriage in 2005, and Kobe blamed himself. Vanessa never got over the shame of his arrest for raping a Colorado woman in 2003.

The Bryants were overjoyed when Gianna (right) came along a year later. Kobe and Gigi became inseparable and she shared his passion for basketball.

The Lakers organization issued a statement on Twitter.com:

"We are devastated and have been forever changed by the sudden loss of Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna. We send our love to Vanessa, the Bryant family, and to the families of the other passengers.

"Words cannot express what Kobe means to the Los Angeles Lakers, our fans, and our city. More than a basketball player, he was a beloved father, husband, and teammate. Their love and light will remain in our hearts forever."

The Lakers organization also asked the public to donate to the foundation. Kobe fans criticized the organization for soliciting funds from grieving fans.

"Why is a billion dollar foundation asking the public for monies? Why not fund it yourself?" wrote one social media user. Others opined that Kobe was worth hundreds of millions of dollars when he died. His sponsor, Nike, and the Lakers are billion dollar corporations.

The request for public donations comes at a time when NBA fans - many of whom are not millionaires - are still reeling from the news of Kobe's death.

Aaron Hernandez's fiancée spoke publicly for the first time since a documentary floated the theory that Hernandez committed murder to conceal his undercover bisexual lifestyle.

In an interview with Good Morning America that aired on Wednesday morning, Shayanna Jenkins said she was not aware that Hernandez was bisexual. She said she "would not have loved him differently" if he had opened up to her about his desire for men.

"Although I have a child with Aaron, I still can't tell you how he was feeling inside," she said. "No one can."

The former New England Patriots wide receiver was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in 2015 for the murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, 27, in 2013.

The three-part Netflix series "Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez," aired in the U.S. on Jan. 15. The documentary theorized that Hernandez killed his friend because he feared Lloyd was gossiping about his bisexuality.

Hernandez killed himself in his Massachusetts prison cell in 2017.
