CONWAY, Ark. (AP) — Authorities are investigating after a person was fatally shot Thursday afternoon at a home in Conway.

Conway Police spokeswoman LaTresha Woodruff says a resident of the home shot a man, telling authorities that he did so in self-defense. Woodruff tells the Log Cabin Democrat that another person who was at the home at the time of the shooting fled.

She says it's not clear whether the two people broke into the house or if they were invited in by the resident. Woodruff says there was "some sort of prior relationship" between the resident and the person who was shot.

The death is Conway's first homicide of the year.
