SPENCER, Okla. (AP) _ A simmering domestic dispute and alcohol may have been a deadly combination for a shooting victim.

Police say two armed men were shot when they showed up at a house in Spencer Wednesday night.

Police Chief David Webb says the men arrived at the house looking to settle a score between the resident and his girlfriend, who is the aunt of the two men.

It turns out the man at the house was also armed and shot one of the other men in the chest. That man later died.

Webb says the other intruder may have also been shot, but officers haven't been able to locate him.

The man who lives at the house was taken into police custody.

Webb says alcohol was involved in the shooting.
