Authorities: 1 dead in Cedarville self-defense shooting

CEDARVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas authorities are investing the death of a man in what they say is a self-defense shooting in Cedarville.

Crawford County Prosecuting Attorney Marc McCune tells the Southwest Times Record the shooting happened Saturday afternoon. He says it appears a man was trying to break into a home when the owners shot him in self-defense. No arrests have been made. Neither the shooter nor victim haven been identified.

McCune says investigators are awaiting results of a toxicology report performed on the victim.
