(AP) — A shooting in Ben Wheeler has left one person dead.

The Van Zandt County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday night received a call about gunfire just outside of the town of Ben Wheeler.

Neighbors say they heard some sort of confrontation before shots were fired. Deputies were on the scene for several hours early Thursday searching a car and a nearby home.

The sheriff's office did not immediately provide additional details Thursday.
