LITTLE ROCK Authorities in Garland County say two people are in custody after a man was fatally shot during a fistfight Wednesday night.
Lt. James Martin said in a statement that deputies were called about 6:20 p.m. to Barite Street in eastern Garland County after 25-year-old David Halpin was shot.
Martin said "very early reports" suggest the two people in custody, later identified as 24-year-old Dustin Wayne Brown and 26-year-old Stephen Tye Curtiss, followed Halpin and a woman to a residence, where an argument and a fistfight started.
"During the argument, one of the suspects pulled a gun and shot the male victim, who died at the scene," Martin said.
The woman, identified by authorities as 29-year-old Amber Brinsfield, was reportedly struck in the head during the fight. She was taken to the hospital with injuries not believed to be serious.
