Ross was found shot twice in the torso on Thursday, June 20. The two were allegedly engaged in an altercation over a video game prior to the shooting.
The primary suspect in the case, Tony Holden, 36, was quickly identified as a suspect following the discovery of Ross’ body on June 20. After several days he turned himself in to authorities.
