Alexis Reed is the 30-year-old Delta employee who was found shot multiple times in a parking lot in Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
The College Park Police Department said in a statement that Reed had been found with multiple gunshot wounds in an employee parking lot around 10:30 p.m. on January 26. WSB-TV reports that Reed was shot “at least 3 times.” The police statement said that Reed’s death is being treated as a homicide and that there are no suspects for the shooting.
When Reed was discovered, she was rushed to a local hospital but was pronounced dead en route.
In a statement, via CNN, a Delta spokesperson said, “The Delta family is grieving the loss of one of our own this morning. We share our deepest condolences with both family and friends. Delta is currently conducting an investigation, in partnership with law enforcement.” Reed worked as a ramp agent with the airline and was based in Atlanta.
