A potentially scary situation happened in Alabama that has left one husband very confused.
On August 15 around 9 p.m., the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office was made aware of a shooting that was happening in a town called Creola. Two men were injured by the time the officers arrived, and luckily nobody suffered from a fatality. While a man thought he was shooting a home invader, he was actually shooting his wife’s secret lover.
Days after the fight, a Twitter user named Ed Clark shared, “Tracy Reeves informed her husband Frank Reeves that there was an ‘intruder’ inside their Creola home. Frank, who was armed, encountered Michael Amacker, who was also armed, inside the home. The two men shot at each other, injuring themselves.”
Drugs played a role in the incident. Deputies noted Tracy Reeves was intoxicated at the time of the shooting and was too incoherent to be interviewed on the scene.
Officials said Amacker is well known in the methamphetamine community with multiple past charges of manufacturing and possessing a controlled substance.
Burch and investigators believe there is more to the story. They said it could have been a murder-for-hire situation, a possible explanation for why Tracy Reeves told her husband there was an intruder.
“Another thing with meth,” Burch said, “people that are on meth not only do they have paranoia, they can’t keep their mouth shut. So if there was some kind of diabolical plan it is very possible Amacker has told some other people prior to or certainly not after the fact.”
Currently, the charges for Amacker are Assault 1st, Possession of controlled substance, and Possession of fire arm with altered serial number. Amacker is a convicted felon and ICE charges are forthcoming.
