FLETCHER, N.C. (AP) – A South Carolina man has been arrested in
the shooting death of a man at a flea market in western North
Carolina.

Henderson County Sheriff’s deputies say two vendors argued at a
flea market in Fletcher on Sunday morning before one of them shot
the other.

Twenty-six-year-old Otha Ray Barefoot of Greer, S.C., is charged
with murder.

Fifty-nine-year-old Paul Allen Bradish of Asheville died in the
shooting.

Capt. Jerry Rice says witnesses provide a description of the
suspect and Barefoot was arrested a short time later.

Owner Ben Campen Jr. says Sunday’s shooting was the first time
any violence has happened at the market in Fletcher.

It was not clear if Barefoot has a lawyer.
