LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Police in Lawrence say a 26-year-old man who was fatally shot at a Mother’s Day cookout had an ongoing dispute with the suspected shooter.

The victim was identified Monday as Lawrence resident Charles T. Brockman.

The confrontation happened around 6 p.m. Sunday at an apartment complex where dozens of people were attending the cookout.

Police said Brockman got out of a vehicle carrying a shotgun, prompting another man to run into a building and try to enter an apartment. Witnesses said Brockman ignored pleas from others to leave and ran toward the same building.

Gunfire erupted, and police say Brockman was shot by the person he was pursuing. That man was questioned and released Sunday night.

No charges were filed Monday while police continued their investigation.
