CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. —
A Home Depot employee accused of shooting at her child’s father will have to remain behind bars.A Clayton County judge denied bond Wednesday for Nikia Jones, 28, who faces two counts of aggravated assault.Nikia Jones met Brandon Jones in the parking lot of the Home Depot along Highway 85 in Riverdale last Wednesday. Nikia Jones is an employee at the home improvement store.Officers said the two got into an argument while exchanging custody of their 2-year-old son and Nikia Jones pulled out a handgun and shot into Brandon Jones’ car. The bullet missed Jones and his female companion, who was also sitting in the car, according to the police report.Riverdale’s police chief told Channel 2’s Tom Jones that the shooting could have had serious consequences with customers walking around the parking lot when the shot was fired. Jones was arrested when she drove to a nearby police station and reported the incident. She said very little when she appeared before Clayton County Magistrate Court Judge Richard Brown. Jones’ attorney had no comment about the case.Home Depot customer Tanya Toles-Johnson told Tom Jones she was surprised that someone would pull a gun during a public custody exchange.“Usually that actually works better to be in in a public place. You know, people are less likely to do something in a public place than they are privately,” she said.
A Channel 2 Action News investigation finds thousands of local votes in the last presidential election didn’t count, though many should have.
