(Scroll down for video) Police in Georgia, were called to a home for a domestic dispute that turned deadly.

When police arrived to the home in Augusta, they found 23-year-old Tennis Alexander Milam dead.

Police said that Milam, was armed with a gun about 1:30 a.m., when he confronted his stepfather for calling 911. The stepfather pulled out his own gun and shot Milam.

The stepfather, 46-year-old Anthony Thomas Sherrill, told police that he called 911 because his stepson got into an altercation with his girlfriend and he did not calm down.

His mother tried to intervene and calm him down while his stepfather was in the room. Sherrill armed himself with firearm for protection and he called police.

When Milam discovered Sherrill had to call police, he stormed into the room and allegedly pulled a gun. The stepfather told police that he shot the man in self-defense.

Milan and his girlfriend shared the home on 5196 North Tubman Road in Appling, with his mother and stepfather.

Milam had a history of domestic disputes with his girlfriend. Last year, he was seen hitting his girlfriend at a gas station pump and officers found bruises on her neck and hand.

Sheriff’s Capt. Butch Askew said that detectives are still investigating the incident, but said that “it doesn’t look like at this time there will be any charges filed against Sherrill.”
