A woman was found shot to death near an elementary school in northwest Atlanta early Thursday morning, according to authorities.

Homicide commander Lt. Andrew Smith said officers were called around 5:30 a.m. to the Collier Drive and Harwell Road intersection in the Collier Heights neighborhood. The intersection is a stone’s throw from an I-285 overpass and just a quarter-mile from Usher-Collier Elementary School, where parents said graduation was happening.

The woman, identified as 25-year-old Area Barnett by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office, had been shot multiple times.

“What we know right now is there was an altercation at the bus stop that resulted in her death,” he said.

Officials have not released any information about suspects.

“We’re going to canvass and try to solicit witnesses,” Smith said. “If anybody does have anything, call Crime Stoppers.”
