2 arrested in fatal shooting at Fort Smith, Ark.

FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - Police say they've arrested two men on first-degree murder charges stemming from a fatal shooting inside a car on a Fort Smith street.

Authorities say 18-year-old Quincy Plessy and 18-year-old Jamal Gibson were charged in connection with the death Monday of 25-year-old Thomas Clayton.

Officers responding to a report of a shooting found Clayton lying beside a road, suffering from several gunshot wounds. He was taken to a hospital but later died of his wounds.

Police Sgt. Don Bales said it wasn't known if Clayton jumped out of a car, fell out or was thrown out, but he had no injuries other than the gunshot wounds.
