Just a day after a fatal shooting at a southwest Atlanta apartment complex, a woman was arrested Wednesday and charged with murder.

Tynessia Lashun Naji, 24, was arrested on charges of murder and aggravated assault and is being held at the Fulton County Jail, police said.

Around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, police responded to an apartment complex in the 1300 block of Kimberly Way and found 32-year-old Nicholas Brown with a gunshot wound, Atlanta police spokeswoman Officer TaSheena Brown said.

The shooting occurred in the parking lot of the complex after a fight ensued between Nicholas Brown and Naji, police said. Brown was taken to the hospital, where he died of his injuries.
