Tallahassee, FL - A local hangout spot in Quincy turns into a murder scene-- and a local man is now facing second degree murder charges. It all started on this quiet gravel road. But on May 30th, cops say one thing led to another and that gravel road wasn't so quiet anymore.

Assistant Chief of Police, Glenn Sapp explained, "The two gentlemen that are known to each other got in sort of an argument and we are not sure what it was about. It involved some shoving between the two."

It was after the scuffle that the victim decided to sit down in a chair on this street but that was when the suspect came at the victim with a stick from behind. The suspect is 45-year-old Gregory Lamar Harris, and he is accused of beating 41 year old Glenn Allen Holley till he was bleeding and unconscious. Holley has since died from his injuries.

And suddenly this quiet street in this quiet neighborhood is buzzing.
One neighbor, Nerissa Green said she "was shocked when I heard this. Because I didn't think he would do anything like that. He's not known to be a violent person."

Now with one man dead and another in jail, those seats outside this home remain empty.

Harris is being held in the Gadsden County Jail, awaiting trial.
