First-year student Anna Jones, 18, was allegedly killed off-campus early on Saturday, July 30, by a University of West Georgia professor.

Richard Sigman, 47, is accused of killing the student, whose loss the university is mourning. Sigman has reportedly been arrested and charged with homicide, aggravated assault, and having a gun while committing a crime, according to Carrollton PD. According to official sources, Anna Jones was killed in the restaurant parking lot after the former professor and she had a contentious conversation.

School president Dr Brendan Kelly said in a statement,

“The University of West Georgia has learned of the loss of one of its students, Anna Jones, who passed away following an off-campus incident earlier today.”

An in-depth look into the Anna Jones murder case

“The investigation then indicates Sigman walked into the parking deck and began shooting into a parked vehicle striking the victim. Friends immediately drove her to the hospital where she was pronounced deceased.”

Richard Sigman and another guy got into a verbal confrontation in the parking lot of an Italian restaurant around midnight, according to reports made public by Carrollton Police. In between the arguments, the accused allegedly threatened to draw a gun on him.

Carrollton Police Department posted on Facebook,

The man informed the security guard of Sigman’s threats. The guard allegedly asked Sigman to leave after spotting him with a gun. Sigman, however, turned around and began firing into a car that was parked in a lot near to Carrollton’s well-known entertainment district, Adamson Square.
