EDGEWOOD, Md. — A man is in custody following a deadly overnight shooting in Edgewood.

On Tuesday, shortly after 2am, Harford County deputies were called to a home in the 1700 block of Dearwood Court.

Inside they discovered 36-year-old Obrien Butler suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper body.

Investigators believe 32-year-old Carl Alexander shot Butler after the two had gotten into an argument.

Alexander happened to still be on scene when deputies arrived. He was arrested and charged with first and second degree murder and assault.

There is no word yet on what led to the argument.
