Family Seeks Arrest in Killing of Woman Shot Through Neighbor’s Door

CNN: A woman was taken into custody Tuesday night in connection with the death of 35-year-old Ajike “AJ” Owens, who was fatally shot last week in central Florida after knocking on a neighbor’s door, a sheriff’s office spokesperson said.

Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods told reporters Monday his office was rigorously investigating the case, and that authorities were working to determine “whether the deadly force was justified or not.”

Fifth Judicial Circuit Chief Assistant State Attorney Walter Forgie told CNN earlier on Tuesday the office is working with the sheriff’s department in the investigation and a “prompt charging decision” would be made “once all of the evidence has been collected and analyzed.”
