Hempstead County Sheriff's Office is looking for a suspect in a shooting that occurred about 9 p.m. Sunday near Washington, Ark, according to a press release.

The alleged victim is Larry Works, 58, of Mineral Springs.

Works said he and a few people were at a blue house on Clay Hill having a conversation with James Stuart about horses when Stuart allegedly got mad and pushed Work's nose with his finger, according to the press release..

Works said a physical altercation between he and Stuart occurred.

According to Works, Stuart stated, "I got you. I'll be back."
