PRINCETON/VINCENNES, Ind. (AP/WTHI) — The victim of a deadly shooting in Princeton, Ind. has been identified as Raheim Bright, 21, of Vincennes.

Police in southeastern Indiana say Bright was shot in the head by a man who confronted him during a fight outside a home.

Princeton Police Chief W.W. George says the man died after being flown to an Evansville hospital following the shooting early Friday. George tells the Evansville Courier & Press that the 53-year-old suspected shooter was in custody and being questioned by investigators.

George says Bright was among a group who left a bar and went to a duplex across the street, where a fight broke out in a neighboring lot.

The chief says the older man came outside and was possibly trying to hit the younger man in the head with the handgun’s butt when it fired. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
