TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

Authorities have identified a man who was fatally shot while sitting in the driver's seat of a vehicle last weekend.

Tucson police announced Thursday that the victim was 50-year-old James Shultz.

Officers responded to the scene Sunday afternoon and Shultz suffering from obvious signs of trauma.

He was taken to a Tucson hospital, where he later died.

Detectives say Shultz and a woman passenger encountered another couple at a store.

An argument broke out in the store's parking lot and Shultz was shot.

Police say 32-year-old James Lee Derrington has been arrested in the case and is being held on suspicion of first-degree murder.

Investigators say Derrington and Shultz knew each other before the shooting.
