El Dorado man faces charges in shooting

An El Dorado man was arrested Monday after deputies said he shot a man through the victim's door, according to an arrest report.

Pulaski County sheriff's deputies responded to 5106 BB Circle after a 911 caller reported a shooting Monday evening in which a 32-year-old man had been shot in the right side of his torso, the report said.

The victim said he knocked on the door and, when no one answered, he went around to the back door, where he knocked again, the report said. The back door opened and closed again quickly and then a man shot through the door and hit the victim.

The report does not specify the relationship between the suspect, Matthew Glen Hughes, 30, and the victim. Hughes was still inside the apartment when deputies arrived, and admitted to shooting the man, the report said.
