Elderly couple shot to death in Floyd County

ROME, Ga. – Law enforcement authorities in Floyd County are trying to piece together the deaths of two people in a home on Terhume Road on Friday.

James Steven Reeves, 69, and 71-year-old Myra Wilson Reeves were found shot to death in the home at about 3:10 p.m.

Rome Police Officer Jerome Poole says that while this is being considered a homicide, there is not an active search in the area for a shooter.

Neighbors in the mostly rural area near the home where the deaths took place said they learned of the incident from the news, not from local police. The neighbors said they were not warned of any danger in the area, despite no arrests having been made in the case.

Investigators from the Floyd County Police Department have been searching for evidence from inside the home. They have also been working with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation on the case.
