GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Gulfport police say a one man is dead and another in jail following a gunfight at an apartment complex.

Sgt. Damon McDaniel tells The Sun Herald (https://bit.ly/1IwusGB) Tevon Johnson was arrested Sunday afternoon and charged with aggravated assault. He’s being held at the Harrison County jail on a $100,000 bond set.

McDaniel officers found another man unresponsive in the complex around noon.

Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove pronounced Robert Johnson dead at the scene.

McDaniel says police determined the dead man and Tevon Johnson had gotten into an argument with a third man.

He says Tevon and Robert Johnson followed the man to his apartment, where Tevon Johnson pulled out a firearm and shot at the man.

Police say the third man returned fire, hitting Robert Johnson in the head.
