Sheriff Eddie Hawkins says when deputies arrived they found 55-year-old Julius Wilson had been shot in the upper part of the body.

Witnesses told investigators Childs was arguing with a female at the apartment complex. A child then called a family member who drove to the apartment.

That’s when deputies believe Wilson and Childs started arguing and that led to the gunfire.
