Jokisha Brown Shot Multiple Times Just Months After Abusive Ex Abducted Her
Police say someone shot Jokisha Brown while she was sitting in her car outside a strip of shops on the 2100 block of Cheshire Bridge Road around 10:15 p.m. Friday.
Investigators have not named a suspect or motive.
“We’re actually interviewing witnesses on the scene. We do have a number of people who were on the scene when the incident occurred. We are collecting evidence, a number of shell casings,” said Atlanta Police Capt. Ben McGee.
Brown’s friend, Jordan Jackson and others, confirmed to Gehlbach that Brown had been the victim of a violent and elaborate abduction from her Gwinnett County home. She escaped only by jumping from a moving car.
“She went through a hard, very, very hard time with this breakup,” Jackson said. “She steadily voiced it, she feared for her life that something might happen to her.”
Gwinnett police investigated Brown’s ex-boyfriend Alfredo Capote in April.
Police have not said if Capote is wanted for the murder, but said they would like to talk with him and are currently looking for him.
