An Upson county couple is in The Medical Center of Central Georgia after being shot Monday night at their home.

The Barnesville Herald Gazette reports James Ross Reeves and his wife, Linda, were wounded after returning from a shopping trip to the Thomaston Wal-Mart.

James Ross Reeves was shot three times and airlifted to Macon, and his wife was shot in the arm, said Herald Gazette Editor Walter Geiger.

Tracking dogs from Lamar County helped in the helicopter search for suspects near the couple’s home on Pleasant Grove Road in Yatesville.

The Reeves, who own The Garden Patch Restaurant in Barnesville, are expected to recover.
