Dash camera video shows Cobb police taking Tennessee murder suspect into custody

COBB COUNTY, Ga. — New dash camera video shows how Cobb County police tracked down a woman wanted for a deadly shooting in Tennessee.

It happened last week on Riverside Parkway crossing Interstate 20 into Cobb County.

Metro Nashville Police Department said Jakira Coleman-Griffen, 20, allegedly shot and killed a 60-year-old man in the head on Jan. 9.

Police told Channel 2′s ABC affiliate WKRN that Coleman-Griffen took off in the victim’s 2017 Hyundai Accent. License plate readers picked up the car the next day in Cobb County.


Cobb County police released video of Coleman-Griffen and a driver in the Hyundai speeding off and leading officers on a short, high-speed chase.

The video shows one police cruiser do a pit maneuver and hit the back of the car, causing it to spin into the median.

The view from another officer’s car shows police pushing the car back into the median and over to the other side of the road.

The car spins again and gets pinned against a semi-truck. The driver tries to get away, but an officer hit them in the front to stop them. The driver gets out of the car with his hands raised. Police identified him as Senquarius Williams.

Williams is not charged with the shooting, according to WKRN. Williams was booked on charges of theft, fleeing from a police officer and traffic violations. His bond was set at $11,220, according to Cobb County jail records.

Coleman-Griffin was denied bond. Both remain in the Cobb County Jail.
