Friday 28 year old Christopher Nicholas Cameron is being held without bond in the Habersham County jail in the death of Michael Preston Cameron, his 22 year old brother.
Sheriff Joey Terrell said their mother, Regina Cameron, who was in the kitchen at the time of the shooting, called 911.
Terrell said,“They were in a room by themselves, and the call came in as an ‘explosion.’”
Terrell told the Gainesville Times, Officers arrived at the house and encountered Christopher Cameron, “who had his hands up and (was saying), ‘I want a lawyer.’”
Terrell said “That’s all he’s told us, so we don’t really know (what happened).”
Officials said Michael Cameron was airlifted to Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville on Friday afternoon after the incident. He died on Friday.
