PRINCETON, Ind. - A man from Louisiana was arrested on a voluntary manslaughter charge in the death of a southwest Indiana man during a fight.
Claude Arender, 53, of Choushatta, Louisiana, was being held Sunday in the Gibson County Jail in Princeton, about 25 miles north of Evansville.
Witnesses told investigators that Arender's handgun discharged when he intervened in a fight between Raheim Bright, 21, of Vincennes, and another man early Friday morning.
Police said Arender told them he shot Bright.
Princeton Police Chief W.W. George said a group of men had been at a bar before going across the street to a duplex.
Arender had not been at the bar, George said, but came outside and confronted Bright with a small handgun.
"The story that I'm getting is that he went to strike the victim upside the head with the butt of the gun and it discharged and shot him in the head," George told the Evansville Courier & Press .
A hearing was set for July 17.
