ATLANTA -

Police are searching for a man who they believe shot and killed his estranged wife as she was driving in southwest Atlanta.

The shooting occurred on Emerald Court around 5:30 p.m. Neighbors reported hearing eight shots.

The Atlanta Police Department says they are looking for Dondrelle Moultrie in connection with the shooting death of his wife, identified as 35-year-old Melanie McQueen-Moultrie.

According to detectives, she was driving away from her home in a red car when someone driving a teal Silverado truck pulled up along side and fired several shots into her car. Her car then slammed into a brick mailbox.

McQueen-Moultrie died of the gunshots, police believe.

Neighbors say their community is a quiet one, and could not believe what happened. One neighbor called the victim a "quiet lady."

Police believe Dondrelle Moultrie is driving a 2008 teal-colored Silverado with a Georgia tag: BCQ8516. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to call 911 or the Atlanta Police Homicide Unit at 404-546-4235.
