A 19-year-old woman lost her life following an alleged abduction by her ex-boyfriend at a Wingstop restaurant where she worked in Fayette County, Georgia. 

The suspect, identified as 20-year-old Cameron Ja’Michael Hopkins, was apprehended by the joint efforts of the Fayetteville and Clayton County police departments. 

The incident occurred at 11 pm on Sunday, July 16, when Fayetteville police responded to an emergency call reporting a kidnapping at the Wingstop located on North Glynn Street. Witnesses who called 911 reported that Hopkins forcefully entered the restaurant and coerced his ex-girlfriend, identified as Khaliyah Jones, to leave at gunpoint.

The witnesses informed law enforcement that the pair drove off in a red Camaro. Responding officers immediately spotted the vehicle and initiated pursuit. The chase ensued down Banks Road, where Hopkins suddenly accelerated, entering Clayton County territory. 

In an attempt to immobilize the fleeing suspect, Fayetteville police executed a tactical maneuver known as a Precision Immobilization Technique (PIT). During this maneuver, several gunshots were reportedly discharged from the Camaro, at the officers, endangering their lives. The law enforcement personnel returned fire. 

Shots were also fired inside the vehicle as Hopkins shot Jones several times. She was found with multiple gunshot wounds in the car and pronounced dead at the scene.

Fayetteville police took custody of Hopkins after a chemical irritant was sprayed into the car and he will face charges of kidnapping and aggravated assault. Clayton County police will investigate Jones’ death and further charges may result.

Following the incident it was revealed that Hopkins had kidnapped Jones one year ago and was facing charges for that incident.
