On the way there, deputies spotted a vehicle at the corner of Cade Lane and Dunn Ratcliff Road that matched a description given by witnesses. A Lincoln County man was taken into custody for questioning, Rushing said. No charges have been filed at this time.

It appears the two were arguing and the disagreement led to the shooting, Rushing said.

The victim was flown to UMMC after he was shot.
