One Charged in Fatal Shooting

An arrest has been made in Sunday's shooting in Sumter County.

Sheriff Johnny Hatter says 26-year-old Gary Collins from Cuba has been charged in the case. He's now being held in the Sumter County Jail on $100,000 bond. He's charged in Sunday morning's shooting death of 34-year-old Jessie Altman.

Sheriff Hatter says a preliminary investigation shows that the two had previously been arguing about drugs.

Investigators say it's too early to say whether more arrests are possible.
