College Park Man Accused of Murder

According to 11 Alive news, a College Park man has been arrested, accused of shooting and killing his estranged wife in a crowded mall parking lot Sunday evening.

College Park Police found Asa Stean Barrow fatally shot in front of the Old National Discount Mall on Godby Road in College Park.

Lt. Bruce Braxton said in a statement their initial investigation revealed James Barrow shot his wife then exchanged gunfire with mall security guards before fleeing the mall.

Sunday night College Park police were hunting for Barrow in a white sedan.

Police found Barrow at a relative's house in Troup county. Barrow is being taken back to College Park to face murder, aggravated assault, and aggravated stalking charges.
This is another killing in a public place that could have brought serious harm to uninvolved bystanders. It is a further reminder why domestic violence will never just be a private, family matter but instead is an issue that everyone should care about.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Barrow family.
