    Wow, 5 times! I noticed the article also said she was shot twice in the head. That seems very personal to me. I'm thinking she knew her killer and this wasn't random.

    or inside the building or the common areas had access to it,” said Maj. Keith Meadows with the Atlanta PoliPolice said there were signs of forced entry to the apartment but believe the woman was targeted, and may have known her killer.

    “There are certain levels of security inside this building so we're certain whomever was inside the apartment ce Dept.

    A family member, who didn't want to be identified, called Kingsberry "a beautiful woman, with a beautiful spirit and a beautiful heart." She had two young sons, the family member said.

    Buckhead shooting victim, mother of two, worked at women's shelter in N.C.

    http://www.ajc.com/news/atlanta/buck...er-570697.html

    "Atlanta police released few details on the shooting death of ZaQuavia Kingsberry, the woman found in a Buckhead apartment Wednesday afternoon.


    Authorities said they wanted to make one thing clear, however:
    "It was not a random act," said Carlos Campos, Atlanta police spokesman.
    Kingsberry, 33, was visiting from Raleigh, N.C., where she worked at a homeless shelter.
    She was a weekend staffer at the Helen Wright Center for Women, a transitional shelter for 230 women each year.
    She also was a single mother, with children ages 15 and 4, according to Anne Burke, executive director of Urban Ministries, which runs the shelter."

    Atlanta police have person of interest in Raleigh woman's death

    Police want to talk to Steven Smith. They say he is known to have been in the apartment the day of the shooting and has resisted requests for a statement.

    this article has a pic of man they're looking for.

    Also, this is the first I've heard of motive.

    "We believe theft" was the motive, Atlanta Police homicide Det. Kevin Otts told the AJC. "The apartment (occupant) said cash was taken from a computer desk."

    Investigators think the killer may have seen a pile of cash on a desk in the apartment, and may have broken in later to steal it--not realizing Kingsberry was still there.
