Surveillance cameras didn’t capture the shooting but did get the suspected getaway car, Ward said. Reed, 30, later died from her injuries.
While College Park police investigated the incident, Clayton County police were investigating a separate homicide.

Around 10:30 a.m. Monday, Clayton investigators were called to a Stockbridge hotel on Davidson Parkway, where they found the body of Shelby, Capt. David Ricks said. It was not known Wednesday where Shelby, 33, lived, Ricks said. She died from a single gunshot, police said late Wednesday.
Police department leaders declined to release details about how Jones was linked to both homicides.
“In a joint investigation with Clayton County Police, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Delta Corporate Security, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Raeshaun Antonie Jones’ location was identified,” College Park police said in an emailed statement.

On Tuesday, investigators attempted a traffic stop after locating Jones in a vehicle in Lovejoy, Ricks said. Jones, a passenger in the car, shot and killed himself when confronted by police, Ricks said. The woman driving the car, who is not considered a suspect, was not identified.
The investigation into the deaths is ongoing, but police do not believe there are additional suspects.
College Park police Chief Ferman Williford said the agencies are waiting on ballistic testing to confirm whether the same weapon was used in both homicides. The GBI is conducting autopsies, police said.
Meanwhile, the families of the two women were preparing for funerals.
Reed grew up in California and graduated from Pinole Valley High School, about 17 miles north of Oakland, Shaunda Shepherd, Reed’s mother, said in a message to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“Alexis Reed was a very sweet, hard-working woman of Delta for 10 years,” Shepherd said. “She lived a very simple life and loved life and family.”
In addition to her mother, Reed is survived by a brother, sister and nephew.
On a GoFundMe page created for Shelby's funeral, Jasmine Shelby wrote that she was "loving, bright, caring and loved life."
“One thing Tyneshia always had was a smile and she kept some crazy story or joke in her pocket to make sure you ended the conversation with a smile, too,” Jasmine Shelby wrote. “She was very comfortable in her own skin; she didn't care about what others thought of her.”
