ATLANTA (AP) - Authorities say a woman who was fatally shot in Atlanta while sitting in her SUV was the victim of a rape and kidnapping by her boyfriend and now he is a person of interest in her death.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://on-ajc.com/2a4mrA3 ) reports the U.S. Marshals Service says Alfredo L. Capote is wanted on charges including kidnapping, rape and aggravated sexual battery in the April attack on actress and model Jokisha Brown.

Brown was found July 1 with multiple gunshot wounds inside her black Mercedes SUV at a strip mall.

The Marshals Service says Capote raped Brown at her Duluth home with her son present, took her to a Cobb County hotel, raped her again and took her to middle Georgia. Gwinnett police has said Brown escaped after "a brutal and prolonged assault."

A $5,000 rewards has been offered for information leading to Capote's arrest.
