Houston County man charged with murder after argument turns violent, police say

The victim was identified as 27-year-old Brock Parrish

HOUSTON COUNTY, Ga. — The Houston County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after an early morning homicide in Kathleen. According to a news release, it happened just after 1 a.m. Thursday in the 1800-block of Highway 247S.

Deputies got to the scene and found 27-year-old Brock Parrish with a gunshot wound to the chest. He was taken to Taylor Regional Hospital in Hawkinsville, where he later died.

Investigators say two men were arguing, Parrish and 31-year-old Dylan Davis. Police say Davis fired a rifle at Parrish during the argument, and he was shot in the chest.

Davis is charged with murder and aggravated assault, and is being held without bond.

This isn’t Davis' first run-in with law enforcement. He was arrested in Sept. 2019 in Warner Robins Police ‘Operation Clean Slate.’ Officers, deputies and U.S. Marshals rounded up nearly a dozen people deemed ‘violent crime offenders’ and parole/probation violators.

Davis was arrested that time on charges of aggravated assault and criminal trespass.

Anyone with information in the case can call Cpl. Zachary Polk at 478-542-2080.
