Atlanta attorney Courtney Cox has been identified as the woman who was shot dead by a man who leapt from balcony to balcony while firing at police before turning the gun on himself.

The incident happened Wednesday, Oct. 20, at a luxury high rise building on West Peachtree Street in Midtown Atlanta.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) identified the shooter as 32-year-old Jarvis Jarrette, who began dating the young attorney over the summer.

Officers responded to a report of gunfire at 3:14 a.m. at the Atlantic House high rise arrived to see Jarrette leaping from a balcony to another balcony before firing a rifle at the police. At least one officer returned fire.

Police found Cox deceased in her apartment. They also found Jarrette dead on a balcony.

The aftermath of the shooting was viewed by a small crowd of onlookers below who pulled out their cell phones to film rather than call 911.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms slammed the bystanders for filming the incident rather than call police.

Friends remembered Cox on social media.

Prof. Natasha McPherson, who taught Cox at Spelman College, wrote:

"A former student of mine from Spelman was murdered yesterday. Courtney Cox was a a lovely human being who was DEEPLY LOVED by her family and friends. She deserved so much better. Here she is with her classmates on a (epic) history research trip to NOLA in 2011 (far right).Damn..."
