Georgia Woman Shot Dead by Her Own Gun During Robbery Attempt—Police

A young Georgia woman was shot dead with her own gun after, police say, she and another woman attempted to rob two men they were in a car with.

Officers were called to the 100 block of Fred Drive in Warner Robins after receiving a report about a person being shot at around 12.30 a.m. on Sunday, the Warner Robins Police Department said in a news release that was posted on Facebook.

Police said investigators learned that Kyndal Reynolds, 21, and Tywana Antonette Cody, 42, both of Warner Robins, had met two men earlier in the night. Later, while they were all inside a vehicle together, police said Reynolds had tried to rob the men.

One of the men attempted to disarm Reynolds and she was shot with her own weapon during the struggle, according to police.

She was transported to the Houston Medical Center in Warner Robins, but she later succumbed to her injuries.

Police said investigators determined Cody had been working with Reynolds to rob the men. Cody was arrested and is facing charges including felony murder and party to a crime of aggravated assault. She was being held at the Houston County detention facility.

The men stayed on the scene early Sunday and cooperated with investigators, police said. They have not been charged.

Meanwhile, a GoFundMe page set up to raise funds to cover the costs of Reynolds' funeral described her as a "wonderful" mother.

"It is with a heavy heart that I am reaching out to all of you today," Akima Rodriguez wrote on the page.

"Many of you may have recently heard that our beloved Kyndal recently passed. Kyndal was a wonderful Mother, daughter, sister, niece, granddaughter, and friend who touched the lives of those around her. Amongst her family, she leaves behind her handsome son Keagyn (Kea), her brother Kingston and Mother Heather Reynolds.

"We are all devastated by the loss of Kyndal, and we want to assist Heather and her family in any way we can and give Kyndal the memorial she deserves to honor her memory and say our last goodbyes."

An investigation into the shooting is ongoing, police said.

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation is asked to call detectives at 478-302-5380 or Macon Regional Crimestoppers 1-877-68CRIME.
