Justin Cox, a felon, is accused of shooting Felicia Miller, 34, and leaving her in a vehicle on the driveway of a home in Marietta, Georgia.

“Mr. Cox is believed to still be armed with a handgun and is not yet in custody,” Marietta police Officer Chuck McPhilamy said.

Officers were dispatched about 4 p.m. after multiple shots were reported in the area, McPhilamy said.

When they arrived, they found Miller -- a mother of five, according to WSB-TV — sitting in a parked Dodge Charger.

Relatives told the news station that Cox, 40, walked up to the car and fired through a window.

"He stood right there and he looked me dead in my face and unloaded the gun again on her," the victim's mother, Gloria Blaylock, said.

Miller was taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds, and she later died of her injuries, police said.

Anyone who sees Cox is asked not to approach him but to call 911. Anyone with information is asked to call Marietta police at 770-794-5345.
