The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that it happened at a home inside a gated community in the Jasper area. Jasper is about 60 miles northwest of Atlanta.

Deputies say they found 36-year-old Christopher Allen inside the home. Stancil said he was taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, where he died during emergency surgery.

Pickens County Sheriff Donnie Griggs says investigators believe the teen stabbed his stepfather with a Samurai-style sword following an argument.
