Man shoots another he said was taking his ORV

PEARCY, Ark. (AP) - Garland County authorities say a man has been fatally shot, reportedly as he tried to drive off on another man's off-road vehicle. The sheriff's office said 34-year-old Brian Luman was found dead early Friday outside the Pearcy home of his reported best friend, 35-year-old Robert Ryan Sipe.

Sipe told investigators he woke up shortly after 3 a.m. to the sound of his four-wheeler starting up outside, and then saw the victim driving away on it. Sipe told deputies he got a handgun and fired two shoots at the man fleeing on the ORV.

A deputy who responded to a report of shots fired at Sipe's home said he found Luman's body beside the four-wheeler.
