In their initial investigation, Police said the woman was angry and verbally abused the cashier from the moment she pulled up to the drive-thru window. After she received her meal, police said the woman drove about two to three feet forward then pulled out a handgun, shooting through the window.

The Shelbyville Police Department was able to identify the suspect as Dare after further investigation. An arrest warrant and extradition request was sent to the US Marshalls Office in Atlanta.

When Dare was arrested, a weapon fitting the description of the one used in the shooting at KFC was recovered as well.

From the Fulton County Sheriff's Office: "She is on track to have an extradition hearing tomorrow morning at 11 a.m. in Courtroom 1D downtown at the Fulton County Courthouse in Atlanta. If she waives extradition, then KY authorities will have 15 business days to pick her up from the Fulton County Jail.  If Dare fights extradition, then a governor’s warrant from Kentucky will be required and that process could take 90 days or more."

Inmate Jonelle Jade Dare waived the right to fight her extradition to Kentucky. 

Fulton County Sheriff’s deputies have notified authorities in Kentucky that Ms. Dare is available for pick up. Fulton County Sheriff’s deputies have 15 business days to do so. Any further details regarding her transport will not be discussed by the FCSO.
