Police said they got a call of shots fired at the Crescent Bluff Apartments at Florida Street and E.H. Crump at 11:06 p.m., and when they got to the scene, they found a woman dead from injuries from a shooting.
Family later identified the woman as Latarica Stripling. Stripling's mother told WREG that her daughter was the owner of the Thread Hair Salon and the Thread Collection.
They say she was shot by her estranged husband in front of two of her three kids.
This is an ongoing investigation, and police have not yet released any suspect information.
Tenants said there have been few problems at the apartment complex. It's just a few years old, and they say they are heartbroken a young mother lost her life.
