One man was killed outside a home on Boulevard at Ashton Street after an apparent argument led to a fatal shooting Friday afternoon.


LaGrange Police Capt. Mike Pheil said police received a call at 3:41 p.m. reporting a shooting in the 300 block of Boulevard. When officers arrived, they found Larry Strickland Jr., 36, fatally shot in the chest.


Strickland allegedly got into an argument with a man at the house, identified as Erwin Brewer, whose age was unavailable, of LaGrange. The two went outside and residents reported hearing two gunshots. When they came outside, they saw Strickland shot and laying in the street.


Brewer allegedly fled the scene. An arrest warrant was issued for him in the shooting and officers and deputies were trying to locate him Friday evening.
