Friday Channel 3 learned more about the events leading up to the shooting death of 21-year-old Peyton Hogan. In court, one witness said it involved an exchange between drugs and sex.
Shaina Hughes and Quincy Goodine showed no emotion as an eyewitness testified about the night of November 13th. “Peyton turned his body towards Quincy. Grabbed his waist, bucked at Quincy. Then Quincy shot him,” said one eyewitness.
The witness said the group spent the night doing drugs at a home on Frazier Drive. He told the judge earlier that morning Hughes talked with Peyton Hogan over Facebook about exchanging drugs for sex. When Hughes began to have second thoughts the witness said the group decided they wanted to rob Hogan. “She didn't want to have sex with him. She was done with the dope. I guess it was just an idea.
When Hogan arrived to the house the witness says an altercation happened. He said Goodine shot Hogan. Hogan made it out of the house, where he then collapsed on the street. He was transported to the hospital where he later died from a single gunshot wound.
“Regardless of whether the plans were changed is between them. The consequence is still the same. The victim was killed,” said Judge Clarence Shattuck. Now the case against the pair will head to a grand jury. Judge Clarence Shattuck found enough evidence to move the charges forward.

PREVIOUS STORY: Chattanooga police are investigating a fatal shooting Friday morning in the Brainerd area.
Police on scene tell Channel 3 the victim died after being taken to the hospital.
Officers say the victim is a 21-year-old white male who was found lying at the intersection of Benham Drive and Frazier Drive suffering with a single gunshot wound to the left chest.
The shooting took place in front of a home in the 400 block of Frazier Drive but police say the victim does not live at that address.
"I believe there is a relation to that house. I believe he has an acquaintance that lives at that house. I'm just not sure of the nature of that," said Asst. Chief Tracy Arnold.
A homicide investigator and crime scene technicians spent hours talking with eyewitnesses and taking pictures of a large pickup truck parked next to where the victim was found.
"We're still investigating but we do have some good information from people who live here at the residence," Arnold said.
Police don't have any suspects in custody but do have a person of interest.
Neighbors say their Brainerd Hills neighborhood is otherwise a quiet area with little crime.
"Kinda blew my mind a little bit when you're talking about a murder, a block and a half from my house," said Steve Torrie. "It's like living in the country in the middle of the city, more or less."
Channel 3 has a crew at the scene and will update this developing story.
