Lithonia woman shot to death Saturday lived with DeKalb cop

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

A Lithonia woman, who neighbors say was the fiancée of a DeKalb County police officer, was shot and killed Saturday afternoon, police said.

The mother of four was found shot outside her home in the 700 block of Kilkenny Circle just after 4 p.m., police said.

Neighbors say the woman lived with a police officer who wasn’t home at the time of the shooting.
Police have not identified the woman.

District 5 County Commissioner Lee May lives near the woman’s home and said he heard the shots.
“It’s just amazing that nobody was outside when it happened,” May said. “Usually, there are kids outside playing.”

He said residents are concerned, but they have seen a heightened police presence in the area since the shooting.
