SHOALS, Ind. (WISH) — A 22-year-old was arrested after the shooting death of a 39-year-old man Monday afternoon in Martin County, Indiana State Police said in a news release on Tuesday.

A fight about 2:20 p.m. Monday at a home in the 800 block of Main Street led to shots being fired, the release said, and Jeremi Jones, of Shoals, died at the crime scene.

The release said Kestin L. Jones, of Loogootee, was initially charged with murder and put in the Martin County Jail. The jail information listed his name as Kisten Jones.
