An Atlanta teen was arrested Wednesday in connection with the shooting of a Georgia woman. Police report that 17-year old Antoine Wimes shot 22-year old Nikki Neely in the face Monday. Wimes was accompanied by 21-year old Donovan McCoy who was arrested the same day of the incident.

Wimes was out on $250,000 bond for murder and aggravated assault charges from a February shooting in Southwest Atlanta. According to police, the two men showed up outside of Neely’s house Monday night demanding money. When she didn’t comply she was shot in the face and upper torso with a .9 mm pistol.

Police found her lying in a pool of blood and her son with bruises and “crushing-type” of wounds. A family member revealed Wimes’ location to police after seeing his mug shot on TV. A reporter from The Atlanta Journal Constitution took a picture of the teen inside a squad car giving the “thumbs up” signal. He later took it upon himself to shout to reporters, “I own this world, like Scarface.”

Both men are facing charges of aggravated assault, aggravated battery, cruelty to children and armed robbery.
