One man is dead and another is on the run after an apparent argument led to a fatal shooting this afternoon on Boulevard near its intersection with Ashton Street.

According to LaGrange Police Capt. Mike Pheil, the police received a call at about 3:45 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 and he was shot. The two were arguing outside a house when the shooting occurred.

Pheil said they believe the suspect fled the scene to a house located in an unincorporated area of the county. Police and deputies were at that house waiting for an arrest warrant to enter the premises.
