Woman fatally shot inside Atlanta apartment

ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Atlanta police are trying to figure out who fatally shot a woman inside her southwest Atlanta apartment early Tuesday morning.

The victim has now been identified as Rashawn Jackson, 34 of Atlanta.

Police told CBS46 News that officers responded to the Venetian Hills Apartments on Campbellton Road at about 3:30 a.m. They found Jackson in a bedroom dead from an apparent gunshot wound to the head.

Atlanta Police Department Homicide Commander Paul Guerrucci said it appears that the victim knew the person who killed her.

"The other occupants (of the apartment) were family members, so they're very distraught right now," said Guerrucci. "We've got to give them an opportunity to gather their emotions right now. It's a very fluid investigation, so there's a lot of information that we don't know right now."

An autopsy will be performed later Tuesday.
