TIPTON COUNTY, TN (WMC) - Tipton County Sheriff's Office made an arrest in the murder of a man in Drummonds, Tennessee.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation identified the victim as Terry Hill, 40. He was killed in a mobile home on Campgrounds Road.

A witness said four people were inside the home when Hill was killed.

Zachery Quinley, 26, is charged with first-degree murder.

Neighbors said Quinley ran an auto repair business. His family members did not want to comment Thursday.

Quinley's neighbor said it grieves her to hear about such violence so close to home.

"Back in my day, the boys had fist fights and that was the worst of it, but nowadays they just don't appreciate life. Like the good Lord says, he gave us life and we don't have the right to take a life."

Tipton County Sheriff's Office said Quinley admitted to shooting Hill multiple times after the two got into a fight. Quinley said he then put the body in the bathtub.
