Hedrick said sheriff deputies responded to a 911 call at 5:47 p.m. Sunday saying someone had been shot on Doty Road.

After Spurs was identified on the crime scence as being the alleged shooter, Hedrick said Spurs alleged the two were playing a game invovling guns.

“Allegedly, they were playing a game where they point guns at each other,” Hedrick said. “(Spurs) said he intended to shoot over (Cauley’s) head, but ended up shooting him in the chest.”

Hedrick said the investigation is ongoing, and he will interrogate Cauley when he recovers.
