PRINCETON, Ind. (AP) - Police in southeastern Indiana say a 21-year-old man has died after being shot in the head by a man who confronted him during a fight outside a home.

Princeton Police Chief W.W. George says the man died after being flown to an Evansville hospital following the shooting early Friday.

George tells the Evansville Courier & Press that the 53-year-old suspected shooter was in custody and being questioned by investigators.

George says the 21-year-old man was among a group who left a bar and went to a duplex across the street, where a fight broke out in a neighboring lot. The chief says the older man came outside and was possibly trying to hit the younger man in the head with the handgun’s butt when it fired.
