CHALMETTE, La. (AP) - Authorities say a bicyclist killed in a hit-and-run in Louisiana was intentionally hit after an argument.

NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports that St. Bernard Sheriff James Pohlmann said an arrest warrant for second-degree murder has been issued for 26-year-old Robert Benbow in the death of 46-year-old Michael Schulz.

A statement from the sheriff’s office says witnesses told deputies the two men were neighbors and acquaintances who had an argument Wednesday. Authorities say they parted ways, but Benbow then returned, threatened Schulz and struck him with his Jeep. Schulz was found injured on the ground and later died at the scene.

The sheriff’s office says Benbow’s vehicle has been found, but he remains missing. Further details haven’t been released.
