Man confesses to fatal Midtown Atlanta shooting

ATLANTA (AP) - The man suspected of fatally shooting a 26-year-old woman and wounding two others recounted the July 2011 incident in court, saying it was like an out-of-body experience.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ( ) reports former security guard 23-year-old Nkosi Thandiwe relived the shooting in court Wednesday, the second day of his trial.

Thandiwe has pleaded innocent to charges of murder, aggravated assault, aggravated battery and weapons offenses in the shooting that left 26-year-old Brittany Watts dead and Lauren Garcia paralyzed. However, in court Wednesday, he recalled absent-mindedly drawing his weapon on Watts and shooting her before fleeing the scene in her car.

Thandiwe's trial was dismissed for recess and was scheduled to resume Wednesday afternoon.
