Georgia man tells police he shot his 19-year-old stepson

A Georgia man has been arrested and charged with murder after authorities say he told officers directing traffic after a church service that he had shot his stepson.

Cherokee County Sheriff’s Deputy Joshua Watkins tells local news outlets Carl Lewis approached Woodstock police officers Sunday afternoon who were working traffic at Woodstock First Baptist Church north of Atlanta and told them he had shot his stepson and didn’t know if he was still alive.

Woodstock police and Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies responded to Lewis’s home and found 19-year-old Bryce McCallum dead of a gunshot to the head.

McCallum had just finished his freshman year at the University of West Georgia.

Lewis is charged with murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.
