    Channel 2 Action News has learned that a woman shot in a home with children nearby on Sunday morning has died.

    Investigators said Lisa LaShawn Samuel Bell was shot by her husband at the home on Habersham Way, just south of Conyers. Three children, ages 7, 10 and 17, were at home during the incident.

    Police told Channel 2's Lauren Pozen, they responded to a domestic call just after 11 a.m. Sunday.


    “It was a little bit alarming because this is a really great neighborhood,” said neighbor Greg Parks.

    Parks was heading home when he said three gunshots went off. When he pulled into his driveway, he said he saw a person in his backyard with a gun along with a string of law enforcement.

    Parks' fiance shot video from her bedroom as the suspected shooter was confronted by deputies. He said deputies told the man to put his gun down.

    “They brought in other tactical officers and shot him with bean bags and took him down," he explained.

    The suspected shooter, Letron Jemone Bell, was taken into custody and is in the Rockdale County Jail facing charges of aggravated assault against law enforcement, felony murder, cruelty to children and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
