COBB COUNTY, Ga. - Police are investigating after a mother of five was gunned down in front of her family.

Justin Cox is accused of shooting and killing Felicia Miller on Sunday at a home on Pin Oak Court in Marietta.

“He took my angel from me,” said Miller’s father, Jeffery Blalock. “He took my joy.”

Miller had five children. Cox is the father of her three youngest kids.

“She was a dedicated mother. She was dedicated to her children. Nothing came before her children,” said the victim’s mother, Gloria Blalock.

The mother said she watched in horror as her daughter pulled into the driveway and Cox opened fire on her car.

“He looked up at me and raised the gun and emptied the gun with a second round,” she said.

Gloria Blalock said her grandson watched his father get the gun and pull the trigger.

“Her 4-year-old told me, ‘My dad went down the street and got the gun,’” she said.

Gloria Blalock said she rushed to her daughter’s side, but there was nothing she could do.

“I said, ‘Felicia, breathe. Keep breathing’ and she was fighting,” she said. “I said, ‘Felicia, I know.’ I said, ‘I know’ and she kind of just went back.”

Cox ran from the scene and was captured Monday in southwest Atlanta, police said.

Police said he is a convicted felon and they are investigating how he got a gun.

The victim’s family said they won’t be able to forgive.

“He’s a coward. He was a coward,” Gloria Blalock said. “I hope God makes him suffer and makes him suffer dearly.”

Miller’s family said funeral arrangements are pending because they do not have the money.
