  • A metro Atlanta woman is accused of stabbing another woman to death at a Rockdale County motel and firing at officers during a chase. It happened at a Motel 6 in Conyers. Right after the murder, a statewide alert helped authorities in another part of the state catch the murder suspect, 42-year-old Joyce Marie Lewis-Pelzer. The alert also sparked new attention being put on the disappearance of another woman seven years ago. Last November, Channel 2 Action News followed up on the disappearance of Shawndell McLeod out of DeKalb County that is being investigated as a homicide. [READ MORE: 6 years later, this missing woman's case is now a murder investigation] While looking into Lewis-Pelzer, Channel 2's Matt Johnson found DeKalb court records that show McLeod took out a protective order against Lewis-Pelzer two months before the disappearance. Lewis-Pelzer is recovering at a south Georgia hospital after the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said she led deputies on a high-speed chase that ended in Turner County.

Deputies in Crisp County returned fire when she shot at them on I-75 Monday night. Authorities said she tried to head to Florida after stabbing her partner. A statewide alert helped a state trooper locate her car and attempt to make a traffic stop before authorities said Lewis-Pelzer kept going. It took two PIT maneuvers to stop her and the GBI said she fired at least one shot from her car toward deputies. As for the McLeod case, a Conyers police spokesperson said they're working with another department to look at the suspect further to determine her connection to an additional murder. The family of the victim at the motel is out of state and have not been notified of her death as of late Monday night. The accused killer has multiple domestic violence arrests in both DeKalb and Fulton counties.

  • A woman shot a police officer in the arm during a confrontation Tuesday afternoon in north Georgia, and then another officer returned fire and fatally shot the woman, authorities said. Calhoun Police Chief Tony Pyle told news outlets that two women were in a car at a gas station in the city of Calhoun when they were confronted. Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Nelly Miles said the officer, Joe Yother, a 25-year law enforcement veteran, said he thought he smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle. When confronted, one of the women reached into the car's glove box, pulled out a gun and fired at Yother's chest, Miles said at a news conference. Authorities said the bullet ricocheted off the officer's cellphone and struck him in the arm. Police said another officer then fatally shot the woman with the gun. The other woman in the car was arrested. Miles said that woman faces charges unrelated to the shooting, but the specific charges haven't been released. Yother was wearing a bulletproof vest and was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Since Sunday, this is the fourth officer-involved shooting that the GBI, the state's top law enforcement agency, was called to investigate.
