DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say an argument between men who’d known each other since childhood ended with the death of a man who tried to break up the fight.

Police say 25-year-old Jarrod Swinton yelled at the men as they argued outside a home on Tuesday night. When the altercation got physical, Swinton approached them.

Chief Mike Chitwood tells The Daytona Beach News-Journal (bit.ly/1QNNRoK) that 27-year-old Rayshad Mincey then grabbed a gun from his truck and shot Swinton in the chest.

The other man drove Swinton to the hospital and told detectives he knew who the shooter..

Chitwood says the men had known each other since they were 8.

Mincey was arrested. He’s being held on a first-degree murder charge. Jail records don’t say whether he’s hired an attorney.
