The shooting happened around 6 p.m. Sunday. Deputies said Vickers shot and killed his stepfather, 53-year-old James Scott Sessions, of Franklin, in front of several witnesses and then ran from the scene located on Rock Mills Road.
This prompted a multi-jurisdictional search for Vickers. Eventually, he was spotted walking down the road and a bystander called 911 to report it.
Investigators said the shooting stemmed from an argument.
