The victim told police he met the woman out of state, and both agreed to be together at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis.

Grant said things turned sour when the victim explained he had to go meet a family member.

"It escalated," Grant said. "He tried to remove himself from the situation and she did not agree with that."

The unidentified woman pulled a weapon, shot into the tires, and into the car.

The victim gave police a name, but it was not a formal identity. Police are asking for the public's help in the Crime Stoppers case. Anyone with information may be eligible for a reward.
