Loudon County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to the reported shooting at 6:15 p.m., where they found the victim lying on a neighborhood road while the suspect waited at the scene, according to Sheriff Tim Guider.
The victim had been standing in the road near his golf cart, while the suspect fired from his vehicle.
They were having words and it got out of hand … maybe some type of road rage,' Guider said.
A witness reported hearing a sustained car horn, then a gunshot, the sheriff said.
The suspect now is in custody and will likely be charged this morning, Guider said. He declined to identify the suspect or the victim, describing both only as senior citizens who lived the community on Tellico Lake.
Guider said he was unaware whether there had been any previous problems between them.
