Victim, suspect identified after woman shot to death in Wells Fargo parking lot

ALPHARETTA, Ga. — A man has been charged with killing a woman outside a Wells Fargo bank in North Fulton County on Saturday.

Police tell Channel 2 Action News they received a 911 call around 11:40 a.m. about a possible shooting at the Wells Fargo off Main Street.

Channel 2's Michael Seiden was at the scene, where police said they found a woman shot in the parking lot. The woman was taken to a local hospital, where she died.

Police have identified the victim as 45-year-old Tynesha Evans, of Alpharetta. Seiden has learned that Evans worked as a driver for Lyft.

Othniel Inniss, 58, was arrested at the scene.

Police said Inniss and Evans were in an off-and-on relationship. It's unclear if they were together at the time of the shooting.

Police are now praising a brave driver who stopped Inniss from leaving the scene after he shot Evans.


Investigators believe there could have been additional victims if it weren't for the heroic actions of a stranger.

Police said a man driving by the bank heard gunshots, stopped his car and grabbed his gun. He raced toward Inniss, forcing him to drop his weapon.

Witnesses said he held Inniss at gunpoint until officers arrived.

Inniss has been charged with murder and aggravated assault with a firearm.
