ATLANTA - A man accused in the shooting death of a female postal worker outside Atlanta has been identified.
DeKalb County Police told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Wednesday that 22-year-old Quantez D'Ante Tyre is wanted in the killing of 22-year-old Tyrika Terrell. Police say Tyre waited outside Terrell's job and fatally shot her in the head Monday night.
A police report states Terrell was found underneath a USPS truck bleeding from the head. She had started with the postal service last month.
Tyre and Terrell had shared 6-month-old daughter.
The newspaper reports that Tyre pleaded guilty to a charge of battery of substantial physical harm after being accused of beating his former girlfriend in her apartment building last year. He was sentenced to a year of probation and domestic violence counselling.
