Judge denies bond for man accused of shooting, killing man at RaceTrac in Orlando



ORLANDO, Fla. - Authorities said Friday they have arrested a suspect after a man was shot and killed at a RaceTrac gas station in Orlando Thursday afternoon.

Richard McKinney, 50, is accused of killing Eric George, 42, at the RaceTrac near Oak Ridge Road and John Young Parkway.

A judge denied him bond during his first court appearance Saturday, a day after his arrest.

Authorities said McKinney was in the convenience store when George pulled up on his bicycle and walked around the store.

McKinney left the store and when George walked outside, he was shot multiple times, deputies said.

 “The victim had come outside and was standing near his bicycle and the suspect approached the victim and at point-blank range fired multiple shots, fatally injuring the victim,” said Jeff Williamson with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said George is the ex-husband of McKinney's ex-girlfriend. Authorities believe their run-in at the gas station wasn't planned but happened by chance, though McKinney denies he was there.

"Yesterday? I was off fishing," McKinney said.

Deputies continue to review surveillance video and talking to witnesses.

“There’s no indication of any kind of altercation between the two either inside or outside,” Williamson said.

McKinney was taken in to custody at a Hess gas station on Friday.

"I didn't kill nobody," McKinney said as he was being led to jail. "I didn't kill nobody, and (expletive) all you guys."

He's being held in the Orange County Jail on homicide charges.
