Area Barnett – Movie Crew Finds Woman Shot to Death at Atlanta Bus Stop

A movie production crew found the body of a woman shot multiple times at a transit bus stop near an interestate overpass in northwest Atlanta early Thursday morning.

 Atlanta police said their officers were flagged down just before 5:30 a.m. at the intersection of Collier Drive NW and Harwell Road NW for the unresponsive woman.

Police Lt. Andrew Smith told WAGA that investigators believe the woman and the gunman got into a fight at the bus stop. The shooter is believed to have fled on foot after the shooting.

“From what we know right now, there was an altercation at the bus stop that resulted in her death,” said Smith.

Smith said detectives are working to identify the woman, but friends and co-workers said she was 25-year-old Area Barnett and said she worked at a Walmart off Cascade Road, taking the bus to work every morning.

“She was a down to earth person. She would never hurt nobody, and she was always silly, goofy, just to herself, she never bothered nobody, never did nothing to nobody. She was the life of the party. I don’t know, it don’t make sense,” said Tatyana Fannin, a friend.

So far, no arrests have been made.
