Akeila Ware, 29, a nurse, was shot by gunfire from another vehicle, sending her Honda Accord head-on into a tree off Highway 18 in Troup County on Tuesday.

‘It does appear to be a targeted crime at this point, not a random road rage,’ said Sgt. Stewart Smith.

Earlier police said they were seeking the driver of a silver Nissan with possible front-end damage.

Two purple star balloons and a single piece of crime scene tape marked the location of the crash on Tuesday evening.

Ware’s family spoke to Fox 5 on Wednesday, prior to the arrest, saying that they could not believe what had happened.

Her mother, Twila Ware, told the station: ‘You know, it’s like you’re going to wake up out of it and, you know, it’s not gonna be true, it’s not gonna so …

‘She was a mother, a daughter, cousin, friend, so anybody with information.’

Her cousin Santoria Johnson described her relative as ‘a very smart, bright young lady.’

‘Anybody with information, please come forward,’ said Johnson. ‘Do it for her family, her kids especially.’
