MILTON | Man charged in teen stepson's death.


MILTON, Ga. -- A Milton stepfather surrendered to police Sunday afternoon after his stepson was shot to death in an apparent domestic dispute.

Milton Police Captain Shawn McCarty says officers responded to a 911 call on Genesis Way, just off Alpharetta Highway, at around 2:30 p.m. Sunday. The suspect told the operator he had just shot his son.

When police arrived, 46-year-old Eric Brandon came outside and surrendered.

The 16-year-old victim, later identified as Alexander Crozier, was found dead of three gunshot wounds inside the townhouse. Another young boy was in the home as well. He told investigators that a fight broke out between the stepfather and stepson shortly after the boys' mother left to buy groceries.

Brandon has been charged with murder. McCarty says additional charges are pending.
