TEXARKANA, AR (KSLA) -

One man is dead and another is charged with first degree murder after an argument over a parking spot led to a shooting late Friday night at a convenience store in Texarkana, AR. 

Officers were called to the Raceway in the 4100 block of North State Line Avenue just before 10:30 p.m., where they say 49-year-old Marvin Stanton took issue with a parking spot 22-year-old Jesse James Hamilton had taken up with his pickup truck when Stanton and 2 others arrived on motorcycles. 

Police say multiple witnesses reported seeing Stanton threaten Hamilton with a gun before a fight broke out and Stanton shot Hamilton one time. 

Hamilton, of Texarkana, TX, was taken to St. Michaels Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery and died early Saturday morning.
