ALPHARETTA, Ga. -

Authorities say a man is dead after being shot at home in Alpharetta on Thursday night.

According to Alpharetta police, units responded to a 911 call at a home on Serenity Court. When they arrived, they found 52-year-old Brian Pugh had been shot multiple times. He was transported to North Fulton Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Investigators say they identified Pugh's ex-wife, 48-year-old Jennifer Pugh, as the shooter. Police arrested her, and she faces a charge of felony murder.

Police say she is being held in the Fulton County Jail without bond.

FOX 5 has learned the victim was an IT Specialist at Coca-Cola and a father of three.

Neighbors in the upscale community said they were shocked to hear of the shooting.

"We would not expect that in this neighborhood. It's all very, very peaceful," said Dr. Ernesto Hernandez.

The couple split in the fall and were in the process of moving, according to neighbors.
