Co-worker suspected in shooting

LAWRENCEVILLE - Police believe a 46-year-old Lawrenceville woman shot her co-worker as he retrieved his newspaper earlier this week.

Carol Marie Clark was arrested Wednesday on aggravated assault and weapons charges associated with the Tuesday morning shooting of George Kodrowski.

While Kodrowski and Clark both worked at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, police spokeswoman Cpl. Illana Spellman said the two saw each other only three times during the past eight years.

In fact, according to an incident report, Kodrowski did not recognize the person who shot him even though they spoke when he went outside to collect his paper outside his Rafington Drive home outside Lawrenceville.

A witness described Clark's car leaving the scene from an adjacent neighborhood, leading police to obtain a search warrant, according to a press release.

Using the warrant, police found evidence at Clark's home, 1131 Appian Way, and obtained additional "probable cause" during a post-arrest interview, the release stated.

Spellman did not discuss a possible motive in the shooting.

Clark is scheduled for her first appearance in court at 9 a.m. today. She is being held in the Gwinnett County Detention Center.

Kodrowski, who was shot in the face, was still being treated at Gwinnett Medical Center late Thursday. He is expected to recover from his injuries.
