ATLANTA (December 5, 2012)--A chance encounter at a Georgia gas station left a 65-year-old woman dead and a 73-year-old man facing a murder charge after authorities say he opened fire after the woman’s car and his motorized wheelchair bumped into each other.
Linda Hunnicutt pulled into the gas station shortly after 1 p.m. Tuesday in Macon, Ga., and stepped out of her Buick Lucerne when the man pulled a gun and shot her.
Hunnicutt’s vehicle and the wheelchair bumped as she drove into the gas pump bay.
She was shot once in the chest with a 38-caliber handgun.
Reeves was arrested in the station parking lot and was held Wednesday on a murder charge at the Bibb County Jail.
