Woman Arrested As Midtown Atlanta Shooter Who Killed Two

A suspect in a series of shootings that killed two people and sowed chaos Monday afternoon in Midtown Atlanta has been identified by authorities as Raissa Kengne, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. An official with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives identified the woman and said task force officers with the agency made the arrest, Channel 2 Action News reported. Kengne was taken into custody at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport at the end of a citywide manhunt that spawned a frenzy of police activity and a shelter-in-place order. The woman is accused of fatally shooting two men and injuring a third at two locations.

Michael Shinners, 60, was found dead and a second victim was injured around 1:45 p.m. at the first shooting scene, a condominium building. Thirty minutes later, Wesley Freeman, 41, was injured in the second shooting at an office tower. Freeman later died at Grady Memorial Hospital. Kengne was taken into custody a little more than two hours after the first shots were fired. She was booked into the Fulton County Jail on multiple counts of murder, aggravated assault, false imprisonment and weapons charges related to those crimes.
