On Oct. 12 The Big Spring Police Department responded to a "shots fired" call in the 1600 block of Settles St.
When officers arrived on the scene, they observed 34-year-old Calvin Jacob Lawson walking away. Law enforcement detained Lawson at that time.
Officers also found 34-year-old Sterling Donald McIntosh dead at the scene.
It was determined that an altercation occurred between Lawson and McIntosh, which allegedly resulted in the death of McIntosh.
Lawson has since been arrested for outstanding warrants for theft of property less than $100 and failure to appear.
At 2:35 p.m., Justice of the Peace Fitzgibbons pronounced McIntosh dead.
The investigation is ongoing.
