Family says woman shot before head-on wreck is brain dead

The family of a woman who was shot while driving to work says she is brain dead, and they’re close to taking her off life support, Channel 2 Action News reported.

Kelsey Quayle, 28, moved to Atlanta from California two months ago for more modeling opportunities, her sister Kayleigh Martin told Channel 2. 

She was driving Monday morning on Upper Riverdale Road going to work when she was shot in the neck, causing her to swerve into oncoming traffic and crash head-on into two vehicles.

“We just have so many unanswered questions,” Martin said. “I just want to know who did this. She didn’t deserve this.”

Quayle was taken to Southern Regional Medical Center in critical condition before being transferred to Grady Memorial Hospital, previously reported. When she arrived at Grady, doctors discovered she had been shot.

Clayton County police Capt. Scott Stubbs told Channel 2 they received no reports of gunfire in the area, and a suspect has not been identified. Police are looking at surveillance cameras in the area.

“Please, please come forward,” Martin said. “Please let us know if anybody saw anything.”

GoFundMe page has been set up by Martin to assist with funeral costs. As of Wednesday afternoon, it had raised about $13,700.
