One of the homeowner’s relatives was wounded from the back and forth gunshots.

The relative claims something went bad and an argument lead to the exchange of gunfire. Calhoun County Sheriff Steve Hinkley is not commenting directly on the new report but confirms the case is not closed an all information is being reviewed by department detectives.
