The locations of the two residences are at the City / County lines.
Following the receipt of a 911 telephone call, Deputies and Officers located the body of a 71 year old male identified as Marvell McFadden of Texarkana. Mr. McFadden was deceased, and was the apparent victim of a gunshot wound to the upper chest.
Officers and Deputies made contact with another male subject at a second address on Sugar Hill Road who had apparently become involved in an altercation at the McFadden residence which resulted in the shooting death of Mr. McFadden.
