The woman arrested in connection with the shooting in Midtown Atlanta appears to have known the victims. The shooting also injured a third person.
The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office published a mugshot of the suspect on Tuesday, confirming her identity as Raissa Kenge.
MARTA officials issued a memo to their employees on Monday afternoon, warning them of a possible shooter. The name in the memo is the same as the name in a workplace discrimination lawsuit filed last year. 11Alive also discovered that both of the deceased victims were listed in the records.
APD previously stated that they think the victims were targeted.
“By the information that is currently available to us now, we do not believe these were random acts of violence,” said APD Interim Chief Darin Schierbaum Monday in an update. “We do believe the individuals were likely targeted who were harmed today.”
According to Atlanta Police, they were called to 1280 W. Peachtree Street around 1:45 p.m. and discovered 2 persons with gunshot wounds. They had been called to 1100 Peachtree Street approximately AT2 p.m., where another individual had been injured, while they were conducting an investigation at that scene.
According to APD, two of the shooting victims died. The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office identified them as Michael Shinners, 60, and Wesley Freeman, 41.
Kenge was apprehended at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport around 4 p.m. after police spent several hours tracking her down. During the arrest, authorities said they found the gun.
They are also attempting to ascertain the motive. However, documents show that both victims were two of dozens named in a job discrimination lawsuit brought by the person named in the MARTA document as the alleged shooter.
It’s one of two lawsuits she’s filed against the 1280 West building management. She claimed in a federal civil suit that she was a whistleblower and that the business, and the management staff involved had violated her civil rights and banking regulations.
Clearly @AtlantaPolicee didn’t want to help #RaissaKengne if someone broke into my home and stole the evidence I needed to charge a corporation with a crime you bet your ass I would be pissed! She went to far but Atlanta Police 👮🏼♂️ could have prevented this! #videomattpresents pic.twitter.com/yylv22HG17— Off Topic Podcast with Host Video Matt (@OffTopicShow2) August 23, 2022
Video of the alleged Midtown shooter. If this is her, she made a few videos alleging her previous employer gained illegal access into her condo and deleted information. This is her at an APD precinct following up on the crime. This is from her LinkedIn Raïssa Kengne. pic.twitter.com/3mGFmjdQRO— Ria 🌸 (@ria_2x) August 22, 2022
