An Alabama man was shot in the chest and injured in a gun fight with his wife’s lover who had secretely been living in their home for more than a year.
Frank Reeves, 58, was told by his wife, Tracy, who was high on meth, that there was an intruder in their home in Creola on August 15. The intruder, however, was her lover, Michael Amacker, who was also high on drugs.
The pair got into a gunfight and Reeves was shot in the chest and injured. He returned fire and was shot Amacker in the leg and elbow. Both men were taken to the hospital and were not seriously hurt, as reported by Fox 10.
Amacker was allegedly able to keep his presence in the home a secret because Tracy provided him with food when he needed it. He also stayed hidden by urinating in bottles and limiting his trips to the bathroom.
Officers later found the bottles of urine in a room where Amacker had been living, accourding to source Chris Murphy.
Neighbors told the news station that the Reeves’ were quiet and didn’t mingle with the community much. When the gunfire rang out one neighbor said he thought it was thunder from an incoming storm ‘because it was so loud and so close’.
Neighbor Kenneth Wilson saw the aftermath and told Fox 10: ‘We saw them bring out the suspect and also the man that was shot, and they both seemed to be okay.
‘They weren’t saying much. In fact the suspect did not say a word – it looked like he was way out of it.’
