Castor Gardens man fatally shot after argument

Start­Frag­ment

Po­lice say an ar­gu­ment between neigh­bors was the motive be­hind the shoot­ing death of a Castor Gar­dens man near his home on Sunday, but the sub­ject of the dis­pute re­mains a mys­tery.

Gun­fire erup­ted on the 1300 block of Wells St. at about 4:20 p.m. Po­lice ar­rived to find Don­ald Mines, 19, a res­id­ent of the block, ly­ing in the street with two gun­shot wounds of the chest, said Of­ficer Tan­ya Little, a po­lice spokes­wo­man. Med­ics pro­nounced Mines dead at the scene at 4:35 p.m.

De­tect­ives iden­ti­fied George Cobb as the al­leged shoot­er and ar­res­ted him later that day at Po­lice Headquar­ters. Cobb, 25, of the 1400 block of Fan­shawe St., has been charged with murder. ••
