Atlanta police have charged a suspect in the kidnapping and murder of a 27-year-old bartender.
Atlanta police charged DeMarcus Brinkley with murder, aggravated assault, kidnapping and other charges in the death of Mariam Abdulrab.
Abdulrab was seen on surveillance footage being forced into an SUV at gunpoint after arriving at her home in the Chosewood Park neighborhood at 5. a.m. Friday.
The well-liked bartender had just finished working her shift at Revery VR Bar in Midtown Atlanta when she was kidnapped outside her home.
Her body was found four hours later in the area of Lakewood Avenue, according to authorities. A witness called 911 after jotting down the SUV’s license plate.
Brinkley, 27, was apprehended by the Georgia State Patrol following a high speed chase that ended when his vehicle crashed into another car on Hill Street in Griffin, Georgia.
He was airlifted to Atlanta’s Wellstar Medical Center where his condition is listed as stable.
Two people in the other car were also airlifted to a hospital. Their conditions are unknown.
Brinkley will be transferred to the Fulton County Jail when he is discharged from the hospital, according to AJC.com.
Abdulrab is the second female bartender to die a violent death in Atlanta in the last three weeks.

Police have no leads in the brutal stabbing deaths of bartender Katherine Janness, 40, and her dog, Bowie, in Piedmont Park on July 28.
Authorities say the Janess and Abdulrab crimes are unrelated — as rumors persist of a serial killer on the loose in Atlanta.
Janness’ girlfriend, Emma Clark, has since left Atlanta.
