Johnson had gunshot wounds to her upper torso; EMS performed CPR but were unable to revive Johnson. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Around 9 PM Wambles was taken into custody. Shortly after investigators found her vehicle and a pistol hidden in a wooden area.

Wambles has been charged with murder.

Investigators believe the shooting happened after threats were made earlier that day.

“Ms. Wambles did give a statement, that statement did lead us to believe that she did commit the murder. This goes back to a situation that happened over a year ago and there had been prior charges in which Ms. Wambles had been charged with assault on Ms. Johnson,” Geneva County Sheriff, Tony Helms said.

Wambles and Johnson had a history with each other, both were involved with the same person.

Andrea Wambles is currently being held in the Geneva County Jail.
