Atlanta Police are searching for a gunman who allegedly shot and killed a woman inside a Midtown office this morning.

Around 6:45 a.m., APD arrived at the Norfolk Southern offices, located at 1230 Peachtree Street near the Woodruff Arts Center, and found a woman who had sustained multiple gunshot wounds. The victim, later identified as Bridgette Holt3, a 47-year-old Hampton resident, was quickly transported Grady Memorial Hospital. She later died from her injuries.

The AJC reports4 that the shooting might have been a “domestic-related” crime.

According to APD spokeswoman Kim Jones, both the male suspect and the female victim worked at the Midtown building.

“Witnesses stated that the victim and the male spoke for a moment before he produced a pistol and shot her several times,” Jones tells CL. “The male then fled the scene.”

APD’s homicide team are currently on the lookout for the suspected shooter. We’ll post an update when we learn more details.

UPDATE, 6:24 p.m.: APD Spokesman Gregory Lyon says that the alleged gunman was found dead in Clayton County with a gunshot wound that “appears consistent with a suicide.”
