Early Saturday, officers were called both to Adamson Square and Tanner Medical Center. At a parking deck just off the square, officers found Richard Sigman on the ground, bleeding from his head, an incident report states.

At the hospital, Jones was being treated for gunshots to her head and leg, the report states. The recent Mount Zion High School graduate died from her injuries.

Sigman, 47, was charged with murder and aggravated assault, police said. Later Saturday, the University of West Georgia said Sigman had been fired from his job as a lecturer in the business school. He remained Thursday in the Carroll County jail, where he is being held without bond.

Investigators are still trying to piece together what led to the shooting, including how Sigman was injured, a spokeswoman for Carrollton police said.
