Deadly shooting on I-85 snarls traffic

ATLANTA - The woman who was shot in the head along I-85 Wednesday morning remains in critical condition.

Police continue their investigation of  a double shooting that happened on I-85 N just before Cleveland Ave.

According to police, a man and woman were both found shot in the head in an SUV pulled off to the shoulder.

The call came in to Atlanta police just after 9:00 a.m. Wednesday morning after police said HERO trucks pulled up on the SUV.

"HERO trucks pulled up on this and initially believed the individuals were asleep in the vehicle," Ben McGee with Atlanta Police Department said.

It is unclear how long the SUV was there before HERO arrived. The man was dead at the scene and the woman was taken to Grady Hospital in serious condition.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner said the man who died is 56-year-old Andre Cambrice of Atlanta. Officials have not released the identity of the woman but did say she is in her 30s.

Police said they found a handgun in the SUV and are still processing the scene.

"We have not established a motive, nor have we established the relationship between the parties involved," McGee said. 

McGee called the shooting an "isolated incident" that was contained to the SUV.
