Bowman’s teen son was in the house at the time of the shooting and called 911 after finding his mother in the SUV, police said.
The search is on for the person who shot and killed a mother of five as she was about to take one of her kids to school.
DeKalb police detectives and the sheriff’s fugitive unit contacted the Granville County Sheriff’s Office in North Carolina after learning Foots may be in the state. Police had been looking for him since he drove away from Bowman’s home in a 2012 Hyundai Genesis.
About 2:30 a.m. Sunday, officers from several agencies found the vehicle Foots was driving.
“After a brief pursuit, Foots left the car on foot,” Robertson said. “The responding agencies were able to set up a perimeter and take him into custody without further incident.”
Foots is currently in the Granville County jail.
