Tyrika Terrell had reason to fear Quantez D’Ante Tyre.
The estranged boyfriend had followed her to her job and just last week threatened to kill her, Terrell told 911 operators.
On Monday, police say he delivered on that threat.
Tyre, 22, was arrested at a relative’s Decatur home Friday afternoon following a two-hour standoff, DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Cynthia Williams said. He had self-inflicted gunshot wounds.
Authorities had been searching for Tyre for four days after Terrell, a United States Postal Service employee, was shot and killed outside her job.
Terrell, 22, was just ending her shift Monday night at the Wesley Chapel Road USPS when DeKalb police say Tyre walked up to her and shot her in the head multiple times, The Atlanta Journal Constitution previously reported.
