Police say Jenifer was shot and killed Friday afternoon in Greenbelt, Maryland, as she left the office building where she worked.
Witnesses say Jenifer saw a man with a gun standing in the parking lot. As she tried to run away, the gunman chased her, shooting her twice.
Police say they believe she was the victim of a targeted killing and that the gunman is at large.
Attoh was in Los Angeles working on a film and immediately flew to Maryland.
Reports say investigators are studying Attoh’s social media posts after he deleted all photographs of him and Jenifer together on his websites — leading to speculation in Ghana that the couple was splitting up.
Attoh and Jenifer were married for just seven months.
