ALTHEIMER, Ark. (AP) - Authorities in Jefferson County say a 26-year-old man is dead after a shooting in Altheimer.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office says the shooting happened Wednesday night near Third and Main streets in Altheimer. Authorities say officers discovered Thrisdon Deshawn Eason dead at the scene from a gunshot wound. Another man, 26-year-old Alfred Burton Jr., was wounded and taken to Jefferson Regional Medical Center.

Maj. Lafayette Woods Jr. says witnesses told investigators that the shooting happened after an argument between the victims and another man. Investigators have not yet recovered a weapon, but did find shell casings at the scene.

Woods says a 30-year-old Altheimer man turned himself in to authorities Thursday morning, but has not yet been charged.
