After a shooting at a mall in suburban Atlanta, the victim died of her injuries and the suspect apparently killed himself, police said Tuesday.

The two apparently knew each other and had some sort of confrontation Monday afternoon in a parking lot at CumberlandMall, northwest of the city, Cobb County police said. Violet Lambert, 55, of Atlanta died at a hospital, according to police.

Police said that a short time later, they found a white van they had been seeking at a home in East Point, just south of Atlanta. The suspect, Danny Wray Brown, 59, of East Point, was found at the home dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to police.

The gunman had also fired a shot at a bystander at the mall who tried to help the woman, The Marietta Daily Journal reported. The bystander was not seriously hurt.

Witnesses said the gunman fled the scene in a white van with a ladder rack on top. Cobb County police said the white van was found parked at a home in East Point, about 15 miles south of the mall. Authorities obtained a search warrant for the residence, and detectives discovered Brown's body there.
