Corey Jones, 28, is charged with felony murder and aggravated assault.


ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta police say they've taken a man into custody after a woman was fatally shot just before the start of the evening rush hour on Interstate 20.

Police said a woman who appeared to be in her mid-20s was shot at least once in her torso Monday afternoon and died at Grady Memorial Hospital.

Authorities say the people involved were in a car that was pulled over on the freeway shoulder. Atlanta police Officer John Chafee said a passenger in the car was taken into custody and now faces charges of felony murder and aggravated assault.

The woman's identity hasn't been released.

Investigators say the shooting was neither random, nor an act of road rage, but details on what led to the shooting weren't immediately available.
