A Georgia woman is dead in what police say was a “targeted attack” on an Uber in the middle of Atlanta.
The shooting unfolded around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday at a stop light by Lindbergh and Adina Drive.
Atlanta Police Department officers arrived at the scene to find a person shot in a black Escalade being used as an Uber. The passenger who was in the back of the vehicle was struck multiple times after a car drove up next to it and began firing into the vehicle.
“This appears to be a targeted incident and as you can see from the number of shell casings, there were multiple shooters but again we don’t have a whole lot to give out right now,” APD’s Charles Hampton said.
Officials could not confirm the victim’s identity but on social media family and friends have identified the woman as popular Guyanese socialite and media influencer Tisha Brodie.
And as police work to piece together the motive behind the shooting neighbors feel uneasy.
