CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — A 24-year-old man is in custody after a Tennessee man was shot and killed in Cape Girardeau during the weekend.

Authorities say 34-year-old Edward Palmer, of Memphis, was fatally shot early Sunday after a fight with the suspect.

The Cape Girardeau/Bollinger County Major Case Squad said in a news release that Palmer and Charles Selvy Jr. were involved in a verbal confrontation that eventually escalated to a physical fight. Police say Palmer was shot during the confrontation.
