Three people charged in the 2018 shooting of a Florida traveler at an Adairsville convenience store are being prosecuted in federal court, including a thirty-seven-year-old Chattooga County woman.
The incident – which happened May 7, 2018, at the QuikTrip on Ga. 140 off I-75 – sparked a three-day manhunt across Northwest Georgia and into Tennessee. Kristy Lynn Davis, age 37, of Kay Drive in the Pennville Community pleaded not guilty last week in U.S. District Court in Rome.
Magistrate Judge Walter E. Johnson scheduled a pretrial conference for October 24.
Destany Marie Schubert, 21, of 8339 Highway 337 in LaFayette and Michael Sean Conner, 25, of 600 Jordan Road in Sparta, Tennessee, have not yet entered pleas.
A criminal indictment filed Sept. 24 charges Conner with shooting the man during an attempted carjacking. Davis and Schubert are charged with helping Conner evade arrest.
The 30-year-old Florida man, identified as Jonathan Michael Meyer by Adairsville police, was flown to Erlanger Hospital in critical condition but has since recovered. Adairsville police credited social media for helping to name and track down the suspects, who were recorded on QuikTrip surveillance cameras.
According to GBI and Adairsville Police Department reports, Meyer had been traveling from Tennessee to his home in Clearwater, Florida, and pulled over to take a nap at the convenience store. The shooting happened about 3:30 a.m.
Schubert, called the getaway driver in reports, was arrested later that day in Walker County and Conner was captured in Marion County, Tennessee. Davis was arrested two days later in Catoosa County.
