WATERTOWN, S.D. (AP) - Authorities believe an argument over noise led to the shooting death of a 17-year-old Watertown boy.

The Watertown Public Opinion reports (https://bit.ly/2st5lq0 ) that Assistant Police Chief Tim Toomey said the death of Jayden Harley on Saturday night was the culmination of an ongoing neighborhood dispute. He said neither alcohol nor drugs played a role.

Toomey said the 31-year-old suspect and Harley were neighbors. Authorities allege the suspect shot an unarmed Harley in the chest with a handgun.

Harley was pronounced dead at a hospital. He had celebrated his recent graduation from high school earlier in the day, at another location.

The suspect was arrested at the scene without incident.
