TRINITY, AL (WAFF) -

One person was shot and killed in Lawrence County Sunday night.

The coroner confirmed Daniel Peoples died at 599 County Road 345 in Trinity.

Authorities arrested 39-year-old Brandon Lorne Barnes and charged him with manslaughter.

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Department said they received a phone call about the shooting around 9:30 p.m.

When deputies arrived, they found a man dead.

The sheriff said Peoples and his common law wife and her son had gone to Barnes' home to visit. He said alcohol was consumed, and Peoples and Barnes exchanged words about inappropriate comments made about Barnes' wife, and an argument ensued.

Authorities said that argument led to the shooting death of Peoples.

Barnes was still at the scene when deputies arrived, and he was taken into custody without incident.

Barnes was questioned, charged, and remains in the Lawrence County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
