The wife of popular Ghanian actor Chris Attoh has been confirmed dead after she was shot while leaving her office in the US.
It was gathered from nbcwashinton.com that the woman, identified as 44-year-old Bettie Jenifer of Bowie, 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.
Officers responded about 5:10 p.m. on Friday, May 10, 2019 and found the woman suffering from a gunshot wound. She was declared dead at the scene.
Currently, the police are searching for the gunman who fatally shot Bettie. He is described as black and having a thin build with black hair. He was wearing dark clothing and may have been in a blue car.
Chris Attoh and Bettie Jenifer married at a ceremony in Accra October 2018. This was shortly after divorcing his first wife, Nigerian actor DamiloIa Adegbite, with whom he has a son.
Last week, Chris Attoh sparked speculation on social media that all was not well with his second marriage after he deleted all of Bettie’s pictures from his social media pages.
It was alleged that they had broken up but neither of the two has publicly confirmed or denied the story.
What a tragedy. Think about it, incident has come just 7 months after being married to Chris. So sad.
