A Georgia woman is currently behind bars and facing aggravated assault charges after she has been accused of shooting a woman associated with the father of her child.

According to a FOX 5 Atlanta report, police officers responded to a call of a shooting in Jonesboro, an Atlanta suburb miles south of Georgia’s capital. Upon arrival, police say Norja’nae Miller, 21, had gotten into an altercation with her child’s father. While the fight ensued, the man reportedly took Miller’s phone and fled the scene, to which she traced the phone and found it was at the residence of a woman acquainted with her child’s father.

Shortly thereafter, a vehicle chase between Miller, the man and the woman began, leading them to the intersection of Flint River Road and Thomas Road, where Miller pulled up alongside them and fired a gun. A bullet struck the woman. The man was not shot, got out of the car and fled the scene. Miller also left the scene where the victim was left injured.

Two female witnesses assisted the woman and rushed her to a local hospital where she was treated for injuries.

Nearly an hour later, police issued an alert in search of Miller. She was found shortly thereafter at a Walmart parking lot and arrested. She is charged with two counts of aggravated assault, possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime and reckless conduct.

The victim remains hospitalized and is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

“The Clayton County Police Department wishes to commend the two courageous citizens who risked their own safety to assist the victim,” per FOX 5 Atlanta.

According to the outlet, “homicide investigations have increased in the city for the third consecutive year. “Atlanta police investigated 170 homicides in 2022. That rate has slowed down, however, since it increased by approximately 60% from 2019 to 2020.”
