BAY MINETTE, Ala. (AP) - A Mobile County constable is in jail on a murder charge with bond set at $250,000.

District Judge Scott Taylor set the bond for 68-year-old Larry Sheffield of Semmes during a hearing Monday afternoon at the Baldwin County Courthouse in Bay Minette.

Sheffield was arrested early Sunday and charged with murder in the shooting death of 52-year-old Jeffrey McMillan outside a bar on the Mobile Causeway. Spanish Fort Police Chief David Edgar says the two men argued inside the bar and then it turned physical outside. He says the victim was shot once at close range.

Sheffield declined comment as he was being transported from the Spanish Fort Jail to the county jail. He was elected constable for the Semmes area in 2012.
