A man is dead and another jailed after a shooting incident near DeKalb in Bowie County.

According to the Bowie County Sheriffs Office, 22 year old Joshua Kemp is jailed on murder charges in connection with the shooting death of 56 year old Dennis Ghignon.

Authorities say they arrested and charged Kemp with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, after he gave conflicting responses to them about what happened.

The charges were upgraded after it was learned that Ghignon had passed away. Kemp is being held in the Bi-State Justice Center Jail. The investigation is continuing.
