ATLANTA – Detectives want to interview people shown in surveillance photos when police say an elderly man opened fire on a woman after her car came into contact with his motorized wheelchair at a gas station.

The woman, Linda Hunnicutt, 65, died shortly after Tuesday’s shooting.

Police said Hunnicutt stepped from her vehicle, and the man in the motorized wheelchair pulled a handgun and shot her in the chest. The suspect, 73-year-old Frank Louis Reeves, is being held in the Bibb County Jail.
