A man is dead following an early Sunday morning shooting in Jasper. It happened at about 3:00 on Hodges Street, a few blocks from the Jasper Junior High School.
Family members say the victim, who has not yet been identified, was shot by another man during some sort of dispute. The victim was rushed to Jasper Memorial Hospital where he died a short time later.
Captain Mike Poindexter of the Jasper Police Department said it was his understanding that a man and woman were sleeping in the house when another man broke in. He said the investigation into the incident would continue on Tuesday.
