Woman shot, killed in northwest Atlanta

Posted: Updated:

Police are trying to find out why a woman was gunned down in a pickup truck in northwest Atlanta late Tuesday night.

A spokesperson for the Atlanta Police Department tells FOX 5 News that three people were in the pickup truck at the time of the shooting that happened around 11 p.m. Tuesday. They say the driver had stopped the truck to talk to someone who ended up pulling out a gun and opened fire into the truck, striking the woman.

The driver took off and ended up at a gas station near Northside Drive and North Avenue. That is where they called police.

The woman, whose name has not yet been released, was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital where she later died.
