ATLANTA -- A police officer says the 73-year-old man accused of gunning down a Georgia woman after his motorized wheelchair and her car bumped at a gas station told him that he only intended to scare the woman.
    
Macon police Sgt. Shermaine Jones interviewed Frank Reeves after the shooting. Jones testified in court Wednesday that Reeves told him that he intended to fire his gun in the air to scare 65-year-old Linda Hunnicutt.
    
Police say Reeves shot Hunnicutt after his 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.
    
The Telegraph (http://bit.ly/ZTLo6W) reported details of Wednesday's court hearing.
    
Reeves' attorney, Veronica Brinson, said her client didn't mean for anyone to get hurt.
