Jokisha Brown

Very sad news coming out of Atlanta…

Jokisha “Dynasty” Brown, a budding actress and model, was shot and killed in a strip mall parking lot on Friday night, just two hours before her 36th birthday.

Police say Jokisha was sitting in her black Mercedes SUV on the 2100 block of Cheshire Bridge Road waiting to get her makeup done, when someone shot her through passenger side window around 10:15 p.m..

“We’re actually interviewing witnesses on the scene. We do have a number of people who were on the scene when the incident occurred. We are collecting evidence, a number of shell casings,” said Atlanta Police Capt. Ben McGee.

Police have not named a suspect, but they’ve been looking for Brown’s ex-boyfriend, Alfredo Capote, since April on rape and kidnapping charges.

Jokisha’s friend, Jordan Jackson, said she had been the victim of a violent and elaborate abduction from her Gwinnett County home. She escaped only by jumping from a moving car.

“She went through a hard, very, very hard time with this breakup,” Jackson said. “She steadily voiced it, she feared for her life that something might happen to her.”

Jokisha leaves behind a teenage son.

Just heartbreaking…

Jokisha Brown was the mother of a teenage son. My prayers are with him and the rest of her family during this difficult time.
