ALPHARETTA, GA (CBS46) -

Alpharetta police have arrested a woman in a shooting in an upscale neighborhood Thursday night.

Officers said the 911 call came in around 6:30 p.m. that a man was unconscious and responded to the house on Serenity Court.

"It's really disturbing and surprising," neighbor Lee Piper said.

Police and fire units quickly responded and discovered Brian Pugh, 52, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

"It was in the garage where it happened.  I walked up the street and some of the neighbors were standing outside and I could see his legs lying on the floor of the garage," Piper said.

Brian Pugh was immediately taken to North Fulton Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

After an investigation, Alpharetta detectives identified Jennifer Pugh, 48, as the shooter. She is the ex-wife of the victim, according to police.

She has been charged with felony murder and is being held without bond at the Fulton County Jail.

CBS Atlanta News has learned that Jennifer Pugh worked for ADP on Windward Parkway in Alpharetta.  The company said counselors were there for employees Friday and Brian Pugh was an information technology specialist for the Coca-Cola Company.  Neighbors and friends said they had three children together.

"I can't believe it happened right around the corner from where I'm at. I never thought something like this would happen in the neighborhood," Neighbor Tracie Nolde said.

Police are still investigating.
