It has been verified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that an employee of the organization lost their life in the shooting incident that occurred at the medical office building of Northside Hospital Midtown.
Benjamin N. Haynes, who is the director of the Division of Media Relations, expressed his condolences via an email to FOX3. He conveyed that the CDC is profoundly saddened by the unforeseen death of a fellow employee who was a victim of the Midtown Atlanta shooting. Haynes further added that the organization sympathizes with the deceased employee’s family, friends, and coworkers during this time of remembrance and mourning.
According to Julian St. Pierre, the spouse of the deceased, the CDC employee who lost her life in the Midtown Atlanta shooting was Amy St. Pierre.

As of Wednesday night, four other women who were also shot during the incident were still receiving medical treatment, with three of them being in critical condition.
The Chief Medical Officer of Grady Memorial Hospital, Dr. Robert Jansen, stated that his team of surgeons and staff dedicated several hours to providing care to the injured women.
The shooting took place at approximately 12:08 p.m. inside a waiting room located on the upper floor of the Northside Hospital Midtown medical building on West Peachtree Street.
Amy St. Pierre was reported to have been present for a medical appointment at the time.
Four other women aged 71, 56, 39, and 25 were taken to Grady Hospital, with each of them arriving at the hospital within 20 to 30 minutes of one another.
At the outset, the police alerted the hospital to be prepared for as many as 12 patients. Consequently, the hospital initiated a “mass casualty event” and assembled an adequate number of surgeons, nurses, chaplains, and other personnel to treat the injured.
In response to the shooting, the hospital implemented heightened security measures and temporarily halted visitor access, as the authorities were uncertain about the whereabouts of the shooter.
All four victims were transported to the hospital by Grady EMS. Upon arrival, two of the patients who were in critical condition were immediately taken to the operating room, where surgeons were waiting.
As for another critically injured patient, their treatment was conducted through “interventional radiology,” which is an invasive procedure typically used for specific types of injuries, particularly those affecting blood vessels. While this patient will require follow-up procedures, Dr. Jansen did not provide any further details.
The patient who was in a stable condition has been receiving care at the trauma center and is not expected to undergo surgery.
Meanwhile, the other three victims are undergoing treatment in the intensive care unit, with Dr. Jansen characterizing their injuries as “very severe.” Following the shooting, the families of at least two of the patients had arrived at the hospital to be with their loved ones, and Dr. Jansen highlighted the hospital’s prompt response to prepare for treating the victims.
Grady Hospital is now the sole Level 1 trauma center in the city, following the closure of the Atlanta Medical Center last year, capable of providing treatment for the most critical injuries. Dr. Jansen expressed his pride in the performance of the entire staff at Grady, stating that the response was “absolutely seamless.”
