WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Worcester police say one man is dead and another man is under arrest after an argument between neighbors turned violent.

Police arrived at a home at about 6 p.m. Monday to find one man on his back on the front lawn suffering from a single gunshot wound and a second man next to the victim applying pressure to the wound. The victim was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Witnesses directed officers to the rear of the building where they found 42-year-old Jacinto Maldonado face down on the ground, arms spread, apparently waiting for police to arrive.

Maldonado was charged with aggravated assault and battery with the intent to cause serious bodily injury. Police say more charges are possible. It could not be determined if the suspect has a lawyer.
