CDC employee identified as victim in Atlanta hospital mass shooting

The US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced that the victim of the mass shooting that recently happened in Atlanta was one of their employees. The victim, identified as Amy St Pierre, was shot by Deion Patterson in the waiting room of the Northside Hospital in Midtown Atlanta. Mr. Patterson also wounded four other women, including Lisa Glynn, Georgette Whitlow, Jazzmin Daniel, and Alesha Hollinger, who are reportedly still in critical condition, according to Grady Health Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Robert Jansen. Amy St Pierre died at the scene. A CDC spokesperson confirmed that the agency is deeply saddened by the event, and their hearts go out to St Pierre’s family, friends, and colleagues, who are grieving her tragic loss. An Emory honors graduate and Georgia State MBA, Amy traveled the world with curiosity and courage, according to her family. She was driven by compassion both in her work in the field of maternal mortality and in her everyday life. Her family has asked for privacy and will not be making further comment at this time. Nora Lynch, one of St Pierre’s friends, paid tribute to her on Twitter and expressed a commitment to continue her advocacy work. Patterson, who fled the scene on foot, has been arrested and charged with murder and four counts of aggravated assault. The suspect’s mother, Minyone Patterson, has revealed that her son had “some mental instability going on” due to medication he received from the Veterans Affairs office.
