Ebonie Driskell, 32, was shot outside of Doc’s Food and Spirits, at 2621 Cumberland Blvd., in Smyrna near U.S. 41 around 1:15 a.m. on Monday, said Smyrna police Cpl. Eddie Cason.
The restaurant is near a Hilton Garden Inn and the Interstate 75 and Interstate 285 interchange.
Driskell had been inside the restaurant, which was still open at the time, and when a man approached her demanding money and got inside the car. The suspect then shot Driskell and fled the scene in her vehicle, Cason said.
The silver four-door Ford Taurus was found around 8 a.m. about a block away from the shooting.
Driskell was pulled from the vehicle by a witness and friend who tried to render first aid, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
No arrests have been made.
