SHELBY, N.C. (AP) - Police in Shelby say a man has been killed and a woman has been hurt in a shooting.

Multiple media outlets report that police were called to a home around 8:45 p.m. Tuesday. Twenty-nine-year-old Jacques McIntyre had been shot in the chest and 40-year-old Demetria Adams had been shot in the foot.

Both victims were taken to Cleveland Regional Medical Center, where McIntyre died. Adams was treated and released.

Detectives said there was a fight involving the victims and 23-year-old Richas Clark. Police say Clark left the home before they arrived, but he was picked up in Gastonia and has been charged with murder, possession of a weapon by a felon and assault with a deadly weapon.

It was not clear if Clark has an attorney.
