|Police in Marietta, Georgia, have arrested a 40-year-old father of five, accusing him of fatally shooting the mother
of his children in front of her relatives, PEOPLE confirms.
A statement from the Marietta Police Department confirms Justin Cox was arrested Monday night in Atlanta on charges of
homicide murder, possession of a firearm during a crime, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Authorities launched a brief manhunt for Cox Sunday afternoon, claiming he fled moments after allegedly shooting his ex-
girlfriend, Felicia Miller, 34, multiple times as she sat in her parked car.
Police say the killing stemmed from a “domestic dispute.”
Officers were called to the scene shortly after 4 p.m. on Saturday, according to the police statement. They arrived to find
Miller “sitting in a parked 2007 Dodge Charger in the driveway” of a Marietta home.
She was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Cox has yet to enter pleas to the charges against him, and it was unclear Wednesday if he has retained legal counsel who
could comment on his behalf.
PEOPLE was unable to reach any of the victim’s relatives for comment.

But several did tell local media outlets they were among those that witnessed Sunday night’s shooting.
“He stood right there and he looked me dead in my face and unloaded the gun again on her,” the victim’s mother, Gloria
Blaylock, told the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
“I ran to my dad and my mom,” the victim’s sister, Tenisha Miller, told WSB-TV. “I couldn’t get in the house fast enough.”
