GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - A man has been arrested in a fatal shooting at a Greenville birthday party.

Jail records show 29-year-old John Mark Cureton was charged Wednesday with murder, attempted murder and possession of a gun. Records did not indicate if he has an attorney.

Greenville County Coroner Parks Evans says 22-year-old Javario Santique Brooks of Greenville died at a hospital Tuesday morning. Brooks had been shot in the abdomen.

Deputies say shots were fired during a birthday party at a mobile home just before 11 p.m. Monday. Brooks and another person were outside, and authorities say both people were shot by someone behind another mobile home.

The man hosting the party says Brooks and another man were his guests and they got into an argument with someone outside.
