Police arrived at the scene of a deadly shooting earlier today in Cherokee County. Police say they found UWG student Bryce McCallum shot to death in a chair at his home.
Police say the stepfather confessed his crime to a church deputy around 1:00pm Sunday.
A nearby neighbor said they heard something that sounded like a gunshot while doing lawn work, but didn’t think anything of it.
Bryce McCallum just finished his first year at the University of West Georgia, he was a football player and loved by family and friends.
We are told he was just 19 years of age and had a newborn on the way. 🙁 Here’s tweets of family and friends expressing their love for Bryce McCallum.
Bryce was one of the coolest guys I knew and everyone that knew him is gonna miss him as much as I do. #RIPBryce
