MARYVILLE (WATE) - A Maryville man was charged with criminal homicide Friday after an investigation into a shooting incident earlier this week.

Edward Lynn Irwin, 41, is suspected in the fatal shooting of Darrell Wayne Young, 59, on Tuesday.

Deputies found Young dead with a gunshot wound to his head in his home on Reagan Mill Road.

Investigators learned that Irwin had visited Young at the house that day when they interviewed Young's family and friends.

Detectives found Irwin on Wednesday afternoon and brought him to the sheriff's office for investigation.

An autopsy was performed on Young at UT Medical Center Wednesday.

Irwin is being held in the Blount County Detention Facility on a $75,000 bond. He's due for a court hearing on September 3.
