Anyone know why a lady killed herself after being pulled over by police on Hwy 5 at the Kmart yesterday? Who was she and why? What could have been that bad?

How did you hear about this? I haven't heard anything about it. Was it on the news? What a tragedy.

My sister works on Hwy 5 and called to tell me about it. I asked my husband to confirm through his contacts and he said yes it was true but he didn't know any details.

She apparently shot herself before the officer could approach her vehicle.

I work at KFC across the street. I was walking across the street after I got off work and saw the car being pulled over by a police officer and had to actually walk around it. When I heard the shot I also could hear the bullet wizz right past me.

I'm thankful it didn't hit me. It was a pretty scary moment. Its a shame she did that.

Thank God you are fine. I still haven't seen any of this on the news. Usually, when anyting "bad" happens in Douglas county, we see it on the the news right away.

I say the cop shot her when she refused to show him her drivers license

I was in the Kmart parking lot within about 15 minutes after this happened. I heard the police say that they had the entire event on video. The lady was pulled over for an expired tag, and as the officer came up to her car she pulled out a gun and killed herself. It wasn't exactly in front of Kmart, it was over more towards the mexican restaurant. They had it roped off for more than an hour. She had a pretty little red car. They covered up the windshield for a good while with white cloth. Evidently they took her body out by one EMS vehicle and then eventually hauled the red car off on a different vehicle.
This is so sad and it saddened everyone in the entire shopping center, from one end to the other. She must have been wanted for something, or else been terminally depressed. The Sheriff's office had officers on the scene. I'm not sure why it didn't make it into the press but it was very intense and really affected everyone who understood what had happened.

Yes, this didn't make it on the news, but the first thing they had on this morning was how people in DC are tying up the 911 lines asking about locations for gas....in a later report they finally admitted 911 centers all over Atlanta were getting calls, but there we go again getting singled out.

I'm so sorry this woman felt so badly she she felt she had to shoot herself. I hope her family can get some answers as to her state of mind.

Glad to hear about the later report. I didn't see that.

By the way, we were talking about you the other day at work. A friend of mine figured out who I am by reading my postings. We were discussing people who post on here and several people mentioned that they always enjoy reading your comments.

I listen to the scanner most days ( scandouglas.com ) and there are a lot of sad/bad things that happen and that never get reported.

I was listening the day this happened and it was really upsetting to me, and I was no where near it. I feel terrible for this families loss.
