MOUNT ORAB, Ohio (AP) -- A southwest Ohio sheriff says a man has been arrested in the fatal shooting of his adult stepson.

The Brown County Sheriff's Office says the men got into an argument before the shooting Monday night at a home in Mount Orab, about 30 miles east of Cincinnati. Authorities say 33-year-old Joshua Ahr suffered a fatal gunshot wound in his side.

Investigators arrested 56-year-old Harry Donald Shafer, and he was charged with murder. He was being held in jail without bond Tuesday while he waited to be arraigned in court.

Jail records did not list an attorney for Shafer.
