      1 dead, 1 arrested in El Dorado shooting

      EL DORADO, Ark. (AP) - Authorities say an El Dorado man has been shot to death.

      The El Dorado News-Times reports (http://bit.ly/1p1WJyq) that police responded early Thursday morning to a report of a shooting at a business. Once inside, authorities say they found 38-year-old Lawrence E. Nelson Jr. with multiple gunshot wounds. The Union County Coroner pronounced him dead a short time later.

      A 34-year-old California man was arrested on felony charges, including first-degree murder. He is scheduled to make a court appearance Friday.

      El Dorado Police Department spokesman Capt. Kevin Holt says authorities have not established a motive in the shooting.
