Police arrested a female suspect at Atlanta’s international airport on Monday, ending an hours-long search after shootings in the city center that left two dead and a third wounded.
The Atlanta Police Department said the shootings were not random and the victims were likely targeted.
Responding to a report of a shooting at around 1:45 PM, police found two people at an upscale condominium building near Colony Square, an office and shopping complex in Atlanta’s Midtown area. One died and the other was taken to a hospital, police said.
While officers were at the first location, police received another call about a shooting less than a mile to the southeast at a high-rise office building, where the third victim was found.
That person also appeared to have been shot and later died at a hospital, police said.
Officers were investigating the connection between the two locations. Initial information indicated that a female suspect was responsible for both incidents, police said.
