SPRAGUE, W.Va. (AP) — A Raleigh County man is dead following an argument over a vehicle that got stuck in his yard.

The Raleigh County Sheriff's Office tells media outlets that 54-year-old Danny Kennedy was fatally shot after he argued with the vehicle's occupants.

Police arrested two suspects and are seeking a third who is a juvenile.

Twenty-two-year-old Dominic Paige of Beckley is charged with first-degree murder. Twenty-eight-year-old Antonio Wade is charged with unlawful possession of a deadly weapon by a convicted felon. Both are being held at the Southern Regional Jail.
