At the same time, a woman witnessed the attempted carjacking from inside her Chevrolet Camaro, police said. That’s when a second masked man approached her and carjacked her vehicle.
The second woman, who was not identified, was not injured, but gunfire erupted near Alexander’s Malibu, and she was shot twice, police said. She died at Grady Memorial Hospital.
A man, who was a friend of Alexander’s, ran to her car to render aid, but he also ended up being shot in the leg, police said.
Police said the two suspects took off in the Camaro, which was found at an undisclosed location. Two other suspects, who might have been women, ran from the scene. It’s unclear how police tied Jones to the incident.
Alexander leaves behind three sons between the ages of 21 and 26 years old, according to a GoFundMe page set up to help with funeral expenses. The page raised a little more than $10,000 before being deactivated.
Jones was arrested Nov. 11 and remains in the Fulton County Jail without bond.
Anyone with information about the deadly carjacking is asked to contact police. The investigation remains active, police said.
