Funeral arrangements have been made for a 30-year-old Delta employee who was killed in the airline’s parking lot in College Park, Georgia.

Alexis Reed died at a local hospital after Raeshaun Antoine Jones, who was also a Delta employee, shot her as she was leaving her shift at night.

Funeral services will be held in California, where Reed is from.

Police told WSB-TV that Jones sat in the employee parking lot and waited for Reed to get off of work. Investigators said she tried to run from him, but he shot her three times.

After killing Reed, police confirmed that Jones shot and killed another woman, Tyneshia Shelby, 33, at a hotel in Stockbridge around 10 am the following morning.

Police spotted Jones at a local gas station where he was sitting in the passenger seat while a woman was driving. When police tried to pull the car over, Jones pulled out a gun killed himself.

Authorities revealed that the two women did not know each other, but both knew Jones. The shootings were not random but police confirmed that they also were not related to a love triangle.

“The connection is Mr. Jones himself,” Clayton County police Capt. David Ricks said. “There is no connection between Reed and Ms. Shelby.”

Delta released the following statement earlier this week about the death of Alexis Reed:

“The Delta family is grieving the loss of one of our own this morning. Late last night, an Atlanta colleague passed away after a shooting at the Camp Creek employee parking lot. We share our deepest condolences with both family and friends. Delta is currently conducting an investigation, in partnership with law enforcement.”

A spokesperson from Delta said that the employees are screened for weapons once they get onto a shuttle bus that takes them to the airport, however, employees are not screened for weapons in the parking lot.

Clayton County police, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Delta Corporate Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and College Park police are all working together on this joint investigation.
