Video shared exclusively with Channel 11 shows the tense moments leading up to the moment shots were fired.

Sources tell us they believe this shooting stems from a love triangle.

Witnesses who were at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Vine Street at around 11:15 a.m. on Sunday say the incident began when two people began arguing in front of the dumpsters outside of a local gas station.

The argument escalated to the point where one of the men pulled out a gun and told the other man that he would shoot him. The man with the gun then fires three times.

Police say when officers arrived on scene they found a man who had been shot in the chest. He later died in the hospital.

“When I came out of my house and I walked down, they had it all taped off,” said neighbor James Stevens. “I knew something was going on.”

A man who stayed on the scene was taken to police headquarters was taken in for questioning. He has not been identified and charges have not been filed at this time.

The name and age of the victim have not been released.
