The injured woman has been identified at 27-year-old Kim Pamela Reaves, and according to the ABH article, she was one of several females who apparently initiated the altercation.

“Reaves was in a group of women who approached and surrounded Lee Nora Elder, 36, who was wielding a pocketknife. When she pulled out the pocketknife, the females began swinging on Elder and hoodies were pulled from the women’s heads, according to police,” the article reads.

One witness who was traveling with Reaves said she saw Elder drive into the apartment complex, at which time Reaves recognized the woman and exclaimed that she and Elder were supposed to fight. When Reaves approached the woman’s car, Elder exited the vehicle while holding a knife.

“Elder’s cousin, who had been driving the car in which Elder and her children had arrived at Rolling Ridge, got among the group of women to break up the fight, at which time he saw Reaves injured and lying on the ground.”

Once police arrived on scene, Reaves had already been transported by a friend to Piedmont Athens Regional hospital with a single stab wound to the chest. Elder was still at Rolling Ridge where the fight had broken out, when police arrived. She had her hand wrapped due to a knife injury. 

“Police noted that the area of the parking lot where the fight occurred was littered with clumps of hair,” the article reads. “Elder was also taken to Piedmont Athens Regional to be treated for her knife injury.”

No one was immediately charged in connection with the fight, but several witnesses were taken in for questioning about the incident.

The fight reportedly had been broadcast on Facebook Live by Reaves’ husband, according to police.”
