Bibb County authorities are searching for a man accused of killing his cousin Saturday afternoon following an argument.
Robert Dewitt Cummings, 55, allegedly shot Oscar Freeman Jr. twice in the face on the 200 block of Pansy Avenue around 3 p.m., Bibb sheriff’s Sgt. Linda Howard said.
The 47-year-old was pronounced dead on the scene, Coroner Leon Jones said.
“One cousin went to the car, got a gun and shot the other cousin,” Jones said.
