DeKalb County police charged a woman with murder Thursday in the death of man at an apartment complex off U.S. 78.

Caristie Montgomery is accused of shooting the man at 1310 Apartment Homes on Wood Bend Drive outside Stone Mountain, police confirmed Friday. The victim’s identity wasn’t released because his family hasn’t been notified.

Police believe the woman and man, who knew one another, were arguing before she shot him. The nature of the argument isn’t clear.

The apartment complex is the same where a massive fire caused the collapse of a building late last month.

Montgomery remains in the county jail.
