New details were released today in the case of a man accused of killing another in Barrow County on Saturday. The Sheriff’s Department incident report states the suspect, Paul Hamilton, reportedly warned a deputy that if he caught someone on his property, “You’ll need to call a coroner.”
Hamilton reportedly made the threat hours before a Barrow County deputy was called to the scene, where Brandon Lay of Winder, Georgia, was found shot to death in a car about 10:30 p.m. The police report adds that Hamilton told the deputy he drew his firearm and shot the victim.
￼ The homicide occurred at the intersection of Charlie Hall Road and Old Hog Mountain Road.
