Shooting and crash kill 2 people in Atlanta

ATLANTA — Two people have died after carjackers apparently wounded the driver of an SUV, which then crashed head-on into an Atlanta bus.

Police Lt. Paul Guerrucci says the driver of the SUV was apparently wounded by gunfire during a carjacking attempt. The SUV then collided with the bus. Investigators believe the driver of the SUV died of gunshot injuries, while a passenger was apparently killed by the collision.

The passenger was identified as 34-year-old Nikita Denise Thomas, an Atlanta 911 dispatcher.

Four MARTA passengers were hospitalized for injuries.

Police say they hope the woman’s 13-year-old son, who was also in the SUV, can provide them with information that will help catch the carjackers.

Why should Chattanooga experience more senseless crime and death? Very ambiguous and lacks superfluous information in order to prove your point. In other words, stupid choice of words.
