ATLANTA — A security guard in shirt and tie opened fire on three women Friday in a parking deck in a bustling Atlanta business district, killing one and wounding two, police said. The suspect left in a black Toyota Prius but was arrested hours later.
Nkosi Thandiwe, 22, was taken into custody and charged with one count of murder and two counts of aggravated assault, police spokesman Carlos Campos said. He worked as a security guard in a high-rise on Peachtree Street, Campos said.
It took hours for investigators to track Thandiwe down after the shooting around lunchtime in the Midtown neighborhood.
The survivors were taken to hospitals. Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones said one was shot in the back and another was shot in the ankle.
Man convicted in series of Kansas City rapes
KANSAS CITY, Mo. —A jury has convicted a 53-year-old Kansas City, Mo., man of sexually assaulting several women in attacks that terrified residents of the city's Waldo neighborhood in the 1980s.
The Jackson County jury on Friday found Bernard Jackson guilty of seven counts each of rape and sodomy, and four counts of robbery in attacks on women in 1983 and 1984.
Jackson was charged with robbing four victims and sexually assaulting three of them, but the fourth victim testified that she was also raped and prosecutors repeatedly referred to four rape victims throughout the trial.
Jackson was arrested in 2010 after a new spate of attacks in the city. He is charged in two of those attacks and has pleaded not guilty.
