ACAMPO-

San Joaquin County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man after deadly shooting Wednesday evening in Acampo.

Deputies responded to reports of a man shot along E. Harvest Road, near Highway 99, around 5 p.m.

Investigators say witnesses at the scene told them an argument between Joshua Franklin and Thomas Birt, both 37, led to the shooting. Deputies were unable to revive Birt. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Franklin was later found by deputies at a south Sacramento hospital, being treated for minor injuries in the fight with Birt, investigators say.

Franklin was arrested and charged with killing Birt.

Investigators say the motive for the shooting is unclear.
