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.
