ATLANTA (AP) -- A chance encounter at a Georgia gas station has left a 65-year-old woman dead and a 73-year-old man facing a murder charge after authorities say the woman's car and his motorized wheelchair bumped into each other and he opened fire.
Police said 65-year-old Linda Hunnicutt had just pulled into the Macon gas station shortly after 1 p.m. Tuesday and stepped out of her Buick Lucerne when the man pulled a gun and shot her. Hunnicutt had driven onto the gas pump bay when her vehicle and the wheelchair made contact.
Hunnicutt was shot once in the chest with a 38-caliber handgun.
Reeves was apprehended in the station parking lot and is being held on a murder charge at the Bibb County Jail. Police didn't know whether he has an attorney.
