MCMINN COUNTY, TN, (WDEF)- According to a family friend the pictures we included in this video report are some of the last pictures of 22 Year old Brandon Hayes before he was shot Sunday evening.

It happened off County Rd 250 in McMinn County.

The main suspect is his 35 year old uncle Marvin.

McMinn County Sheriff's Office say the shooting happened after a heated argument.

Sheriff Joe Guy"A domestic situation, unfortunately this young man died because of his gun shot wounds and the TBI is actually investigating that case"

Community leaders say we really do not know what goes on behind closed doors in some of these more rural areas.

Commissioner J.W McPhail,"All you have do is look around and you see it happen in communities that it has never happened in before, it's a quiet community, be on guard, and keep your eyes open and observe what's going on once in a while"

McPhail says neighbors were all at Church sunday evening when police cars sped by.

"Had a long gun some made the comment that he was going to shoot a coyote, well he took the long gun in the car and went on down the road, then about 5 minutes later another patrol car came by"

Brandon Hayes died from his wounds Monday after initially being transported to a local hospital and then on to Knoxville.

McMinn County Sheriff's office say the case is in the hands of the TBI and their main role was to secure the scene.
