shooting

 

Monticello police have arrested a 19-year-old Monticello man in connection with the shooting death of DeAngelo Martin.

Harold Goffin, III, 19, of Monticello, is being held on probable cause of manslaughter and tampering with evidence in the Sunday evening shooting of Martin, according to Monticello Police Chief Eddy Deaton.

Martin, 20, of Monticello was shot once in the head Sunday evening at a residence on Lincoln Court in Monticello. Martin died Monday at a Little Rock hospital.

“At this point (in) the investigation (it) appears the shooting was a reckless accident and was not an intentional act,” Deaton said in a Monday morning news release.
