HAMILTON, Ga. (AP) – A Georgia sheriff says a man and his sister’s argument about cows led to the man’s death over the weekend.
News outlets report 60-year-old George “Bick” Bickerstaff was shot in the head Friday night.
Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley says Bickerstaff and his sister were arguing about cows that had been getting out of a fenced area and into a garden. During the disagreement, the sheriff says Bickerstaff fired a gunshot in an unspecified direction. The sheriff says the sister’s boyfriend then got out of a vehicle and returned fire, and Bickerstaff was shot.
Harris County Deputy Coroner Joe Weldon says the man died at a hospital Sunday morning.
Jolley says alcohol played a role in the shooting. No charges have been filed.
