Investigators believe Jean-Pierre shot his manager during an argument on Friday. Atlanta police say the manager was involved in a dispute with the employee earlier in the day and the employee was asked to leave. Investigators say he later returned, confronted the manager and shot him.

Sunshine and Sunrise McDonald’s owns the franchise location. Human resources director Colnith Brown identified the manager as Elizabeth Williams. He says she is currently in Grady Memorial Hospital and “was fine, last I heard of it”.


Brown described Williams as an “incredible leader” and “much loved by his team and the community.”

Brown said Williams and Jean-Pierre seemed to have a good relationship before filming. Brown said Williams had just returned an armful of laundry she had washed for him.

Atlanta police are asking anyone with information about Christopher Jean-Pierre’s whereabouts to contact 911.
