The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the woman who shot and killed two men and injured a third in Midtown over the summer has been charged with murder by a Fulton County grand jury.
Raissa Kengne, 34, was charged with two counts of murder, two counts of murder, five counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, three counts of possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony, one count of attempted burglary and one count of forcible confinement.
Atlanta police say Kengne targeted the victims, who were linked to a lawsuit she filed against a former employer and the property management company at her Midtown condo, alleging they conspired to blacklist her from job opportunities and benefits.
Wesley Freeman, 41, his former supervisor at BDO USA LLP, a major accounting firm in Atlanta where Kengne worked as an audit manager, was killed. He was shot at 1100 Peachtree St., where BDO USA has an office. Freeman was named in Kengne’s lawsuit, as was BDO USA.
Michael Shinners, 60, was also killed at the 1280 West condo building, where Kengne lived. Shinners was the building manager for Beacon Management Services, the property management company at 1280 West. Michael Horne, chief building engineer for Beacon Management Services, was seriously injured. Beacon Management Services was also named in the lawsuit.
Police say that after committing these crimes, Kengne took a taxi to his former lawyer’s home in Ansley Park and apparently planned to commit another crime. Fortunately, the lawyer was not at home.
Kengne was arrested at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport hours after the August 22 shooting near Colony Square. The shooting prompted a massive police response from the APD and several other local and federal agencies. Streets in the bustling city center were closed and police ordered schools, businesses and residential buildings in the area to be locked down.
