LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A 26-year-old Lawrence man is dead after two men exchange gunfire following a confrontation at a Mother's Day cookout.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports police were called to an apartment complex around 6 p.m. Sunday in response to a shooting. When officers arrived the victim already had been transported by family members to a hospital, where he died.

Officers received descriptions of the suspect and his vehicle, and a Douglas County sheriff's deputy took the man into custody shortly afterward.

A witness says about 35 people were at the cookout when a man carrying a shotgun got out of a vehicle and approached someone at the cookout. The witness says the man at the cookout pulled out a pistol and shot the man holding the shotgun, who returned fire.
