— A Little Rock man accused of shooting a man Tuesday night admitted arguing with the victim over a game of dominoes but denied firing a weapon, according to documents filed in Little Rock District Court.

Albert Sims, 27, is due in court today on a charge of 1st degree battery, a class B felony. He was arrested shortly after 9 p.m. at his apartment at 8621 Baseline Road, which is where police say the shooting occurred.

According to a report filed by Little Rock Police Department Detective Tommy Hudson, officers located Bradley Brackshire at the residence with a gunshot wound to his left side. He was transported to Baptist Medical Center, where he was taken in for surgery for injuries not expected to be life-threatening.

Authorities later interviewed Brackshire's girlfriend, who told investigators Sims was the one who had shot him, according to the report.

Police say Sims denied it.

"Mr. Sims stated that there was an argument in his apartment over a domino's game but that he did not shoot Mr. Brackshire," Hudson wrote in the report.

Sims was then booked in the Pulaski County Detention Center.
