A man was fatally shot in his car Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2016, at Eisenhower Parkway and Bloomfield Road in Macon, GA. An apparent argument between men, one in a white Dodge Challenger and another in a black Honda, escalated to gunfire, witnesses said.

A man was shot to death on Eisenhower Parkway about lunchtime Oct. 11 after an apparent road-rage-fueled confrontation with another driver.

Randy Eugene Epps, 58, was killed after 22-year-old Will Hollingsworth opened fire on him just before a stoplight at Bloomfield Road.

Hollingsworth, of Lizella, told Bibb County sheriff’s investigators that Epps, a Jeffersonville resident, had brandished his gun first. Hollingsworth said he shot in self-defense, and the sheriff said there was not enough evidence proving otherwise.

District Attorney David Cooke said the case is still being actively investigated.
