MERCED, Calif. (KFSN) -- Merced police have arrested a suspect in an early morning shooting that left one dead and another person injured.
45-year-old Adam Telly was taken into custody on Wednesday afternoon in an Atwater neighborhood.
"Our detectives were able to locate him in the 1900 block of 4th street in the city of Atwater," said Captain Joey Perez with the Merced Police Department.
The shooting happened after 5 am in a neighborhood on Frankfort Court at Denver Way.
Police say they responded to reports of multiple shots fired.
When officers arrived, they said they found a man suffering from gunshot wounds. He was declared dead at the scene.
Officers also found another gunshot victim. He was taken to the hospital for further treatment.
Action News spoke to the father of the victim, who was shot in the leg.
He said that his son is now home and recovering.
A woman was also at the home when the violence unfolded but was not hurt.
"It appears to be some type of domestic dispute," said Captain Perez.
"It appears that she was possibly in a dating relationship with Mr. Telly, and she could've possibly been in a new relationship with the deceased victim at the scene."
While the police tape is cleared from the area, neighbors say they're still in shock over what happened.
Ariel Glaude is a friend to two of the victims and lives down the street from where the shooting happened.
"When the cops were called, I was waking up," said Glaude. "I heard the father screaming and was severely angry. After I heard that, I heard the sirens."
Glaude told Action News was aware of the ongoing conflict between Telly and the woman in the past.
"Situations like this, they change people," said Gladue. "They make them into somebody they're not, and it's only because they're going through that stress."
