ATLANTA (WXIA) -- Police have arrested 63-year-old Alex Mason, and charged him with intentionally running over and killing 53 year old Marilyn Redding. She was walking on a sidewalk.
Mason was booked into the Fulton County jail Monday morning. Fulton County Police spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan says Mason is due in court Tuesday morning.
Police say Redding and Mason were involved in an altercation some time before the incident.
Witnesses told police that Mason revved the engine in his vehicle and drove it toward Redding after she walked out of a corner store. The vehicle jumped the curb and struck Redding.
It happened around 5:30 p.m. on Gartrell Street in Northeast Atlanta on Sunday.
Bystanders rushed the car, pulled Mason out, and subdued him until police arrived.
Family members say Redding is a mother of ten children.
Arthur Jones, who witnessed the assault, said " I don't care what kind of argument they may have had, he didn't have to kill her that way."
