IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) —A 58-year-old man is dead after a fight led to a shooting in Idaho Falls.

The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office says the incident occurred Wednesday around 10:30 p.m. in the 500 block of N. Lakewood in Idaho Falls.

Authorities say two men, a 26-year-old and 58-year-old were arguing, when the older man went inside to get a gun, went back outside and fired his weapon.

The 26-year-old, who was already armed with his own gun, returned fire and hit him at least two times, deputies say.

Deputies have not publicly identified the two men, who are related. No other injuries were reported.
