The two deceased victims were listed in a workplace discrimination complaint filed last year.
ATLANTA — An incident Monday afternoon sent Midtown residents to safety as Atlanta police announced a fatal shot on Peachtree Street and West Peachtree Street. The suspected shooter was eventually arrested hours later at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Here’s what we know:
Atlanta police were first called to 1280 W. Peachtree Street around 1:45 p.m. Monday. They found two people with gunshot wounds. While investigating this scene, they were called to 1100 Peachtree Street around 2 p.m., where another person was injured.
The suspect left the scene and headed towards Colony Square. A tipster led officers to the airport where she was eventually taken into custody. A police report says she took a taxi to the airport.
Who is the alleged shooter?
The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office released a photo of the suspect, who they now confirm is Raissa Kenge.
What happened when the suspect appeared in court?
Kenge made his first appearance in Fulton County on Tuesday afternoon. The state read the charges against the woman and the judge found probable cause in the case. The suspect interrupted the judge to say that the man presented as his lawyer was not his lawyer. The judge explained the process of a court-appointed judge. The judge said the case would be heard at a later date with a lawyer of his choice.

Who are the victims ?
There were three victims in Monday’s shooting. Two people died and another was injured.
The two deceased were identified by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office as Michael Shinners, 60, and Wesley Freeman, 41. The name of the third victim was released Tuesday by his family. His name is Mike Horne, and his family said he was still in hospital.
Horne’s family said his condition was stable, but many organs were damaged. The family added that a long road of surgeries likely awaited him.
According to his social media, Shinners, 60, worked for Beacon Management, which runs the condo. Freeman was shot less than a mile away and died in hospital.
What is the relationship between the alleged shooter and the victims?
Police said the victims appeared to have been “targeted”, but did not give details. Documents in a workplace discrimination lawsuit filed last year by the suspect, Raissa Kenge, show the names of the two victims among dozens. This is one of two lawsuits she is a part of against the management of the building at 1280 West. She claimed to be a whistleblower in a federal civil lawsuit, and the company and executives involved violated her civil rights and financial regulations.
