An Atlanta woman was shot to death during an attempted robbery and her vehicle stolen early Monday morning at a liquor store in Smyrna.
Investigators said Ms. Ebone Driskell, 32, had just left the store with an acquaintance and had gotten into her car when one of two suspects jumped into the vehicle with her.
“He pointed a gun at her,” police spokesman Cpl. Ed Cason said. “There may have been a struggle over the gun and she was shot and killed.”
Her friend pulled her from the vehicle while the second suspect jumped into the vehicle and both suspects left the scene in the stolen car.
Officers found the car, a 2003 silver 4-door Ford Taurus, about half a mile away in the parking lot of Golf Warehouse Atlanta on Spring Drive and Cumberland Blvd., police said.
They did not find the murder weapon and they are still searching for the suspects.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Smyrna police at (770) 434-6666.
