CCSO investigating shooting on I-85

The Newnan Times-Herald

The Coweta County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting that occurred on Tuesday morning between exits 47 and 61 on Interstate 85.

Around 5:45 a.m., a woman called 911 and said she’d been shot while driving on the interstate.

The woman told dispatchers a gray Buick passenger car pulled up beside her on the interstate and a man wearing a black ski mask aimed a gun at her and fired, striking her.

The woman, who said she did not recognize the man or the car, was transported to Grady Hospital. Her condition is unknown.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 770-253-1502.
