Neighbors say the neighborhood on County Road 153 in Lafayette is normally quiet.

However, all that changed early Sunday morning when deputies responded a call regarding gunshots at a home around 3:30 a.m.

"When deputies arrived they found the body of Jarrod Smith in the shower of the home with a gunshot wound," explains Major Mike Parrish of the Chambers County Sheriff's Department.

Jarrod Smith, 32, was allegedly shot and killed by 28-year-old Kason King of Lafayette.

Authorities say the two men saw each other earlier Saturday evening and got into an argument.

"Apparently earlier in the night there was a confrontation between the victim and the defendant at a local bar which carried over from there," says Parrish.

King was located shortly after the time of the murder and was arrested and charged.

He is now being held at the Chambers County Detention Facility with no bond.
