SMYRNA — An Atlanta woman is dead after an attempted robbery led to a shooting in Smyrna.

Ebonie Driskell, 32, was shot outside of Doc’s Food and Spirits, at 2621 Cumberland Blvd., in Smyrna near U.S. 41 around 1:15 a.m. on Monday, said Smyrna police Cpl. Eddie Cason.

The restaurant is near a Hilton Garden Inn and the Interstate 75 and Interstate 285 interchange.

Driskell had been inside the restaurant, which was still open at the time, and when a man approached her demanding money and got inside the car. The suspect then shot Driskell and fled the scene in her vehicle, Cason said.

The silver four-door Ford Taurus was found around 8 a.m. about a block away from the shooting.

Driskell was pulled from the vehicle by a witness and friend who tried to render first aid, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

No arrests have been made.

Ebone was my cousin and these two sorry less then men ducks took something from us and her one and only son we can never replace. She was a beautiful bright person. Now we have a child with hate in his heart cause these two nothings has took his mom. In August she loaded all the kids in her car took them swimming let them spend the night watched movies just a good time.I want these two to be arrested stand justice and spend the rest of their soulless hearts in prison forever. They dont understand what they took from us. Work for your own stuff. She drove a 03 Taurus what type of money do you really think she had!!!This could have been their mother their sister. I wish they make examples out of them when your blood stop and your eyes close its over for life no im sorry, i didnt mean to do its a wrap its done. This child can never touch talk laugh play with his mother again.PRAY FOR HIM Please
