Cook, 25, was arrested Oct. 20 after authorities responded to a home in the 500 block of Lake Joy Road, according to a sheriff's office news release.

Allen's grandmother, Rosylin Livingston, 67, called Houston County's 911 center around 11 p.m. and said Cook shot her in the head, the news release stated.

Deputies arrived at the home and found her and her husband, 70-year-old Thomas Livingston.

According to the victims' statements to investigators, Cook got angry at his grandmother and shot her in the head with a .22- caliber handgun, the news release stated.

Then he found his grandfather in a bedroom and shot him in the head, the sheriff's office says.

Thomas Livingston overpowered Cook, took his pistol away and restrained him until deputies arrived, the news release stated.

Judy Le was in the courtroom and will have more on this story on Eyewitness News at 5 and 6.
