    Former University of West Georgia professor Richard Sigman (47) shot and killed freshman student Anna Jones (18)

    https://www.cnn.com/2022/07/31/us/un...der/index.html

    The University of West Georgia is grieving the death of an 18-year-old freshman and grappling with the notion that a former professor is charged in her death.

    Richard Sigman, 47, has been arrested and charged with murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime for his involvement in the death of Anna Jones, the Carrollton Police Department said.

    Jones was fatally shot in a parking garage early Saturday morning.

    Sigman got into a verbal altercation with another man at an Italian restaurant in Carrollton, according to police. The other man told security that Sigman threatened to shoot him, police said. Security at the restaurant saw Sigman had a weapon and told him to leave. Sigman then left and walked to the parking deck.

    "The investigation then indicates Sigman walked into the parking deck and began shooting into a parked vehicle striking the victim. Friends immediately drove her to the hospital where she was pronounced deceased," Carrollton police wrote on Facebook.

    "This case is active and ongoing. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Carrollton Police Department."

    Carroll County Jail's online records listed Sigman as "currently booked" as of midday Sunday. No bond amount was listed. It was not clear whether Sigman had legal representation.

    The president of the University of West Georgia issued a statement Saturday. "The University of West Georgia has learned of the loss of one of its students, Anna Jones, who passed away following an off-campus incident earlier today," President Dr. Brendan Kelly said.

    "UWG has terminated the employment of Richard Sigman and continues to work with the city of Carrollton Police Department, which leads this ongoing investigation. On behalf of the university, we wish to convey our deepest condolences to Anna's family and many friends," Kelly said.

    Jones was a recent graduate of Mount Zion High School in Carrollton, which posted a tribute to the slain university freshman on Facebook.

    Sigman, who was employed by the University of West Georgia, was seen arguing with another man at a pizzeria called Leopoldo?s in the Adamson Square area. Sigman reportedly threatened to shoot the other man, who notified security.

    Security asked Sigman to leave, and he was last seen walking towards the parking garage.

    According to police, Sigman then started firing into a parked car, striking and killing Jones. Her friends drove her to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

    Sigman was charged with murder, three counts of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during a crime. He is being held at Carroll County Jail.

    Carrollton police officers found Sigman outside the parking deck ?soon after the shooting?. He was intoxicated during both the fight at the restaurant and shooting.

    Police do not believe Sigman and Jones knew each other.
    He threatened to shoot someone over who knows what, was asked to leave, and then randomly executed a woman he didn't know who was sitting in her car (because he was pissed?). Let that sink into your brain.

    Another murder by another gun nut. Rest in peace to that poor woman. She got shot because he was too chicken to go back and confront the man he had a problem with. This is messed up and one of my greatest fears.

    I feel like it's this rage that so many Trumpies carry around these days. They are angry at everyone and just looking for an excuse. It is scary!

    Yes, and it all depends on how much propaganda they're being fed. If others live in they're community it's even worse. It's different if you don't have a face to put with the enemy. However, when the enemy is at Burger King like you? That validates everything.
