The call on July 12 was for homicide after 16-year-old Chase Gillis was shot in the head after what Bibb County deputies described as a gun swap.

REPORT: Gun swap led to Macon teen's shooting death

Logan Nettles, 19, a resident in the home, was there when Gillis died along with a third man, 23-year-old David Billingsley.

Billingsley is the one who shot the teen alleging it was in self defense after Gillis held a gun to his head, according to a Bibb County Sheriff's Office incident report.

Nettles and Billingsley have not been charged in Gillis's death.

Five days after the homicide, deputies were back at the home. This time it was for a domestic disturbance between Nettles and his father, Clint Nettles.

According to a Bibb County Sheriff's Office incident report, Clint Nettles and his son got into a fight after the 19-year-old took his father's cell phone, cigarettes, and lighter.

The incident report states Logan Nettles hit his father upside the head a couple of times with a gun causing him to bleed and bruise and telling him, "Next time, I will kill you."

Logan Nettles remained in the Bibb County jail Thursday on $7,000 bond charged with aggravated assault family violence.
