Cobb County police are investigating after a woman was found dead inside her car at an apartment complex.

Cobb County police responded to a call of a car crash at the Westminster Square apartment complex on Windy Hill Road in Marietta around 1:20 a.m.

The police discovered the body of Manju Gurung Poonmagar, 37, inside her vehicle. She was dead from an apparent gunshot wound.

"We believe it happened as the witness heard the cars crash in the parking lot," said Sgt. Dana Pierce.

Gobinda Shrestha told CBS Atlanta News that he met the victim about two years after she married his close friend.

"She's a very good lady, funny. Very friendly and very hard-working," said Shrestha.

CBS Atlanta News was on the scene when detectives talked to a man at the victim's apartment who was not her husband.

Moments later he was taken in for more questioning.

Shrestha said the victim and her husband, who are from Nepal, had been active in the local Nepalese community.

He said his friends are broken up over the killing.

"He's really upset. Even he couldn't talk to me," said Shrestha.

Anyone who may have information regarding this homicide is asked to call (770) 499-3945.
