TROY, Ala. — An Alabama man accused in the shooting death of a man and injuring four others in a domestic dispute has been arrested.

Pike County Sheriff’s Office told multiple news outlets that 54-year-old Charles Louis Foster is accused of shooting the five people inside his home on Sunday. Police say 56-year-old Eddie Blair was killed in the shooting, and his body was found in a backyard adjacent to the home.

Police say three men and a woman were injured in the shooting.
