A Bibb County Sheriff's Office incident report released Monday gave more details into the moments leading up to the fatal shooting of a Macon minister April 23.

Tracia Hubbard, 48, is accused of shooting Brandon Parker, 33, to death after the two argued outside of her mother's home at 739 Grosso Ave.

The report characterized the fight between Hubbard and Parker as a "lover's quarrel."

Parker, the grandson of famed soul singer Otis Redding, was a well known preacher at Ebenezer Baptist Church, 777 Elm St.

A Bibb County deputy who responded to the shooting arrived on the scene to find another deputy attempting to resuscitate Parker while Hubbard - who was "crying hysterically" - was applying pressure to Parker's neck, the report states.

The deputy secured the scene and put Hubbard in his cruiser, the report states. Investigators then talked to Collistine Hubbard, who identified herself as Tracia Hubbard's mother.

Collistine Hubbard told deputies that she told Parker to leave her property several times because he was arguing with her daughter, the report states. As the dispute continued, Collistine Hubbard said she could hear Parker saying, "Shoot me! Shoot me!"

Shortly after that, Collistine Hubbard said she heard what sounded like a struggle and then a gunshot, the report states.

Parker died of a gunshot wound to the neck, according to Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones.

Tracia Hubbard remains in Bibb County jail charged with murder.
