A move Justice never got to make ... State Police were called to Justice's home Sunday afternoon after they say a fight broke out and shots were fired.
"During that altercation Gary King shot Mr. Justice and killed him inside his residence." Says State Police Detective Amos Adkins.
Gary King was also found shot to death in his home less than half a mile away in the same hollow ...
