Authorities identify woman killed by Police in deadly shooting

On Thursday, police shot a woman in Downtown Atlanta after she started firing, while she was in the back of a patrol car. The woman has been identified as 25-year-old Alexia Christian. According to police, Christian was held in the back of the police car when she shot at two police officers, who were sitting in front of the vehicle.

According to police, the officers right away returned fire after jumping out of the patrol car. Christian was then taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, but she died over there. The incidence took place near Underground Atlanta on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive at Pryor Street.

According to witnesses at the scene told CBS46 that the situation made people run around and several shots were fired in the incidence.

As per Veronica Ridin, “All we heard was shots. And we just took off running. I was thinking they was shooting at the people that was outside of the car running. But I believe they was just trying to save themselves from the shots that was going on”. Christian was arrested for being in a stolen car.
