GBI IDs man shot, killed by officers in southwest Atlanta

The GBI is investigating a deadly officer-involved shooting in southwest Atlanta. 

Police tell Channel 2’s Lauren Pozen the suspect is dead.

A stretch of Brookline Street and Metropolitan Parkway was closed early Sunday morning as police investigated. It reopened just before 10:30 a.m. 

Police said they were first called to a domestic call where there say the person was armed.

They said the suspect, identified as Jeremiah Perdue, 33, showed a handgun and pointed it at a family member and threatened them.

That’s what prompted the 911 call.

When officers arrived, they said Perdue left. 

Officers saw him in the 1000 block of Metropolitan.

They said that when they approached him, Perdue pointed the handgun at them.

That is when officers fired several shots at him.

‘Ma'am, ma'am! He's in your car!' Woman says slider stole belongings from car in split second

A Marietta woman is warning drivers to beware after a thief targeted her at the gas station.

The woman, who only identified herself as Queen, told Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik she’s still seething after becoming the latest victim of a slider.

The woman said she pulled up to the pump at a Smyrna gas station along South Cobb Drive around 7 a.m. Thursday. That's when someone slid into her car and took whatever they could get their hands on.

"After I was pumping the gas I came around because I had some stains on my car and I had water on this side of the door," Queen said.

She told Petchenik that she walked away from her car to throw something away and that’s when a someone went into her car.

"All of a sudden I heard a lady yelling at the other pump, ‘Ma'am, ma'am! He's in your car!’ I turned around and he ran so fast," Queen said.

In a split second, Queen said the man slid through the passenger side, over to the driver side and grabbed her belongings.

"He took my phone and my wallet," Queen said. "He slammed the door and took off so fast that I got his license plate number."

She said police have surveillance video.

"He saw my face. I want to see his face," Queen told Petchenik. "If you see somebody ducking down being scandalous, a little raggedy thief who ain't got nothing to do, tell somebody else."

Petchenik asked the gas station if he could see the surveillance video from the theft, but they asked him to go through Smyrna police. So far, they have not responded to Petchenik’s request.

In the meantime, Queen had a message for the thief:

"You need to stop doing this. You need to help the women out, not rob and steal from women," she said. “It's ridiculous."

Crews find kayak near dam in search for missing woman

Crews expect to step up their search efforts Sunday for a recent college grad who vanished from a local campground.

The woman’s heartbroken mother is asking the community for help in trying to find her daughter, Miranda Whitten, 24. 

She disappeared while kayaking on a camping trip with her family in Troup County on Friday.

Channel 2’s Michael Seiden spoke with investigators and family members who spent the day Saturday searching for the young woman. 

“Just let someone know that you’re alive. That’s all we want to know. We just want to know that you’re safe and you’re OK and you’re alive Miranda,” was Tabby Whitten’s message to her daughter. 

The mother broke down in tears Saturday night as she tried to explain to Seiden what makes her daughter so special.

“She’s a good girl and she’s always been a good girl. She just graduated from Auburn," Tabby Whitten said. “She’s just a wonderful girl. She really is. She's just got such great potential and I know she’s going to go far in life.”

The Troup County Sheriff's Office said the Valley, Alabama, native was on a family camping trip at Shaefer Heard Park when she disappeared Friday afternoon while kayaking on West Point Lake.

“Around 12:30 p.m. some campers saw her kayaking out in the water, and shortly after that a storm came through and around 2:30 yesterday her kayak was seen floating into the water with the paddle and the life jacket," Sgt. Stewart Smith with the Troup County Sheriff's Office told Seiden.

Since then, no one has seen or heard from the recent college graduate.

On Saturday, investigators from the sheriff's office and the department of natural resources combed the waters looking for any signs of life.

“Nobody saw her get out of the boat. We don’t know if she got out of the boat and swam to shore. Maybe walking somewhere,” Smith said. 

For Miranda’s family, the waiting game is excruciating. But if anyone can survive this, her loved ones believe she has what it takes.

“We’re praying. We are praying so hard,“ Tabby Whitten said. “She’s kayaked all her life. She’s a hiker and she’s very active. It just don’t make sense. It don’t make sense. It just don’t.”

Anyone with information on Whitten’s whereabouts is asked to call the Troup County Sheriff’s Office at 706-883-1700 .
