Police are searching for a gunman who fatally shot 44-year-old Bettie Jenifer, the new wife of actor Chris Attoh, in the head in the parking lot of a Maryland office building on Friday.
Jenifer, who recently got married to Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh, had left the office in the 6300 block of Ivy Lane, and was walking to her car, when a man armed with a handgun approached her, the Greenbelt Police Department said.
When she tried to run away, the man followed her and fired off multiple rounds, with at least one shot striking her. He then fled in a vehicle.
She was declared dead at the scene.
The killer was described as black and having a thin build with black hair. He was wearing dark clothing and may have been in a blue car.
The couple married in October 2018, shortly after Chris divorced his first wife, Nigerian actor, DamiloIa Adegbite, with whom he has a son.
Last week, Chris sparked speculation on social media that all was not well with his second marriage after he deleted all of Bettie’s pictures from his IG page.
