More charges added in Braselton gas station shooting investigation
Woman, mother accused of obstruction

An Oakwood woman faces more charges — as will her mother — related to the investigation of a Flowery Branch man’s death.

Angela Baker, 28, was previously charged by the Braselton Police with obstruction, tampering with evidence and theft following the death of James Walls, 56.

Walls was found dead at the Circle K gas station around 1 a.m. Saturday at the intersection of Ga. 124 and Ga. 211.

Braselton Police Chief Terry Esco said Thursday Baker now also faces charges of party to a crime and conspiracy to commit a crime. Esco also said Baker’s mother, whose name could not be confirmed, would be charged with obstruction and hindering apprehension.

According to Braselton Police, Baker and Walls went to a nearby Waffle House to meet someone.

“Her story is … someone owed (Walls) $500 and he was there to collect it,” Assistant Police Chief Lou Solis previously told The Times. “Next thing you know, the guy they’re waiting for pulls up. She says she doesn’t know him.”

Baker and Walls then traveled to the Circle K, where Walls and the shooter got into an argument, according to police.

Walls was shot in the chest.

Baker, who was inside the store, allegedly grabbed her purse, her cellphone and Walls’ cellphone from the car she was in with Walls, Solis said.

Her mother would later pick her up, according to police.
