Sylvester, GA Man Killed in Self-Defense

A Sylvester woman fatally shot her son after her held her and his girlfriend at gunpoint Tuesday.

Around 9 o'clock officers were called to a home in the 800 block of North Isabella Street.

Witnesses told investigators that 28-year-old Christopher Terrell Bunn was beating his girlfriend and his mother, 58-year-old Brenda Haire.

Haire shot Bunn in the chest with a handgun. Paramedics tried unsuccessfully to revive him.

Several people were taken in for questioning, but no charges have been filed.

Police say it appears Haire acted in self defense and that witnesses say Bunn had a history of domestic violence.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Haire and Bunn families.
