38 year- old Joseph Edison Bridges of Calloway is charged with the murder of his brother - in - law.
I'm Shannon Young in for Jean Jadhon.
Franklin County officials say they're not sure what led Joseph Bridges to fire a fatal shot at his brother- in- law Howell Scott yesterday evening.
Investigators say Bridges was waiting in his Ford Pickup truck near Scott's home on Bridges Lane when Scott and his family pulled up in their mini- van.
The two met driver's door - to driver's door with Bridges allegedly firing a shot that hit Scott in the head.
Sherriff Quint Overton says Bridges later offered to turn himself in under certain circumstances.
