PONCHATOULA - Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards says a suspect has been arrested in a fatal bar room shooting Saturday night.

Edwards says 45-year-old Robert Jenks, of Springfield, was taken into custody in the shooting death of 55-year-old Harold Bart Oliphant Sr. in a Ponchatoula bar on Louisiana Highway 22.

Edwards say Jenks and Oliphant were engaged in an altercation prior to the shooting.

Jenks was booked with second-degree murder and possession of a fire arm in an alcoholic beverage establishment.

It was unclear whether Jenks has an attorney.
