Accused Ga. gas station shooter out on bond


The Associated Press

MACON, Ga. — A man accused in a fatal shooting at a Macon gas station has bonded out of jail.

According to Bibb County jail records, Frank Reeves was released Tuesday night on $110,200 bond. A judge last week set bail for 73-year-old Reeves, who was arrested in the early December shooting death of 65-year-old Linda Hunnicutt.

Police say Reeves shot Hunnicutt after his motorized wheelchair came into contact with her Buick outside a Macon gas station Dec. 4. She later died, despite efforts of bystanders to revive her on the pavement.

Reeves is staying with relatives and has been ordered to wear an ankle monitor. Officials say Reeves is allowed to leave home only for medical and court appointments.
