MARSHALL, Texas (AP) _ Three men were charged in a shootout that left one man dead and six people injured at a birthday party in a public park, police said.

Jerry Brightman, 33, was charged with felony deadly conduct and Ladarrean Leary, 25, was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, police said.
