MILTON, GA (CBS ATLANTA) - A Fulton County man is scheduled to make his first court appearance Monday at 11 a.m. in the shooting-death of his stepson.

Eric Brandon, 46, is charged with murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner's office identified the victim as 16-year-old Alex Koser.

"I don't understand why he would shoot him. I just feel sad for the family. Rest in peace to him," said neighbor Dillon Chance.

An argument between the two apparently sparked the deadly shooting according to Milton Police spokesperson Captain Shawn McCarty.

The stepfather shot his stepson at least three times Sunday afternoon at their home on Genesis Way off Alpharetta Highway, just north of the Webb Road intersection.

Koser was a student at Alpharetta High School.

Brandon remains at the Fulton County Jail.
