Charlie Gray, a mutual friend of the two men involved in the dispute-turned-murder, says the night began with everyone relaxing after a day of hunting.

"We'd come back in. Me and Doug was in the house talking, Doug was talking nice to us all. He wasn't being mean to nobody," said Gray.

That's when Gray says Terry Grubb came into the house, accusing Douglas Roberts of arguing with and running off a friend of Grubbs.
Shortly after the encounter, Gray says it got out of control. He says Grubb grabbed a gun and went after Roberts.

"He broke loose from me and I seen him come up with the gun. And I was trying, I had my concentration on him telling him no, no, don't do that man, don't do that. And next thing I knew, he come up like that and took aim down the gun, and he fired," said Gray.

Gray says Roberts was hit trying to leave the residence when Grubb shot him.

"He was not doin nothin. He shot him for nothing."

Grubb's grandmother says the two men being in the same family makes the situation worse.

"My heart goes out for people, you know? I hate that this happened, cause it's all in the family. But what Terry done he had to do," said Cleo Curry.

She says it wasn't Grubb's nature to act so violently.

"He never, you know, harmed nobody's life. And he's always a good boy. When I was sick at the hospital, he was always there, sitting on my bed," said Curry.

Grubb will be back in court December 6th for a preliminary hearing. His bond is still set at $50,000.
