RICHWOOD — A man in his 30s died at a local hospital after being shot at an apartment complex Thursday evening.

Police took a man in custody after the shooting in the 400 block of Timber Creek Drive, Public Information Officer Jarrett Skelton said. Police received the call about a possible shooting at 8:08 p.m. Thursday, he said. 

The suspect has been charged with murder, Richwood police said in a news release early Friday morning. Police declined to release any information about the man pending his arraignment.

The victim, who had multiple gunshot wounds, was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital but died while receiving care, Skelton said. Information about him was being withheld pending notification of family members, police said.
Investigators said a verbal argument preceded the shooting, but offered no details.
