An altercation in downtown Flagstaff early Sunday morning left one man dead and another in custody.

Flagstaff police officials say they responded to a report around 1 a.m. Sunday of a large crowd of people fighting in front of a downtown bar.

When officers arrived, they found 26-year-old Frankie James Jackson in the street with an apparent gunshot wound. He was transported to Flagstaff Medical Center where he later died of his injuries.

Police arrested 26-year-old Treysean Michael Anthony Ware at the scene on multiple charges, including suspicion of second-degree murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Witnesses told police that Ware and Jackson were fighting outside the bar when Ware pulled a gun out, allegedly shooting Jackson twice.

It’s unclear if Ware has an attorney yet who can speak on his behalf.
