Angry that her ex-girlfriend was talking to a man, a woman fired several shots at the couple – killing the man.

Ms. Leslie Mosby, 30, was sentenced to life in prison plus 25 years for felony murder, aggravated assault and weapons charges on Wednesday, the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office said Friday.

The shooting happened on Nov. 13, 2012 in the parking lot of a motel on Frederick Drive near Fulton Industrial Boulevard, prosecutors said.

Mr. Theisen Wynn, 37, was sitting inside a vehicle with a woman who once dated the defendant, the district attorney’s spokeswoman Ms. Yvette Jones said.

“Upset her ex-girlfriend was with someone else, Defendant Mosby blocked the victim’s car in as the two were exiting their vehicle,” Ms. Jones said.

Ms. Mosby then exited her vehicle and confronted the couple about being together, prosecutors said.

“Mosby then produced a handgun and fired a shot towards her ex-girlfriend after a brief argument,” Jones said.

The bullet missed. And the woman backed away.

“Mosby fired a shot at Mr. Wynn who returned fire striking the defendant in the stomach, leg and arm,” Ms. Jones said.

Ms. Mosby fled the scene in her vehicle and Mr. Wynn, who was shot in the thigh, limped into the motel lobby where he collapsed, Ms. Jones said.

He was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital where he later died, prosecutors said.

Officers responding to call about a person shot found Ms. Mosby a short distance away, Ms. Jones said.

She told the officers she was involved in a road rage incident and that shots were fired at her car, injuring her, Ms. Jones said.

But surveillance video recovered from the motel showed Ms. Mosby firing her gun at both victims and then fleeing the scene, Ms. Jones said.
