A female suspect is officially in custody after being arrested at the Atlanta airport following a shooting spree that occurred earlier this afternoon in the upscale neighborhood of Midtown Atlanta at the condos on 1280 West Peachtree Street. The female suspect reportedly shot three people, tragically leaving two of them dead, as an intense search in Midtown Atlanta by the local police department resulted in her prompt arrest.
Via @11Alive, footage was released of the moment the female suspect in today’s Midtown Atlanta triple shooting was apprehended and arrested by Atlanta PD.

Speaking about today’s shocking and deadly incident, Atlanta Police Department Interim Chief Darin Schierbaum, revealed that the shooting was likely a targeted attack. “By the information that currently available to us now, we do not believe these were random acts of violence.
