Mr. Reford Henry Thomason, 45, died Tuesday afternoon of bullet wounds from a 22 caliber pistol, at the home of Mr. And Mrs. J. T. Roman near Poole's Bridge.

Mr. and Mrs. Roman, returning from Atlanta, found Thomason lying on the porch of their home about 1:30 P. M. A pistol was found nearby. He was taken to Paulding Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Cause of the shooting has not been determined, pending further investigation and laboratory tests.
