PIGEON FORGE — Police here have charged a 75-year-old local man with voluntary manslaughter, saying he fatally shot a man who lived at the same residence on Sugar Hollow Road.
Investigators filed the charges against Bobby Rauhuff on Wednesday afternoon.
Court documents indicate a witness told them he shot and killed 33-year-old Jeremy Lowe Tuesday.
Both men were living at a house on Sugar Hollow Road, which Sevier County records show is registered to Rauhuff.
“(Lowe) had been living at that residence when the incident occurred and the two of them got into an altercation,” Lt. Matt Pendleton said.
Court documents indicate a witness, Angela A. Dyke, told investigators that Rauhuff shot Lowe after the altercation.
The affidavit did not indicate what caused the struggle, and Pendleton said detectives are still trying to learn what led up to it.
Police previously reported that they responded to the scene at about 6 a.m. Monday, after getting a call about a shooting.
When they arrived they found Lowe dead at the scene.
