Editor's note: In an earlier version of this story, the Herald Democrat erred in the spelling of Lt. John Kennemer's surname. 

The Sherman Police Department arrested a man on a charge of murder Monday night for allegedly killing another man during an altercation.

Lt. John Kennemer said officers arrested James Ragland, 68, for the murder of a 65-year-old male victim. Kennemer said the department could not release the name of the victim until his relatives were notified and that he did not know how the victim and Ragland knew one another or what the two were arguing about prior to the deadly confrontation.

“Last night, at approximately 6:20 p.m., officers were sent over to the 1700 block of East Payton in reference to two men involved in a disturbance,” Kennemer said Tuesday morning. “Upon officers’ arrival, the victim was transported to a hospital and once he arrived there, the hospital pronounced him deceased.”

Kennemer said the victim’s body was found outside of a home along the residential street and Ragland was arrested at the scene. The lieutenant also stated that a weapon was recovered, though he would not say what it was and he declined to comment as to what type of injuries the victim sustained.

“The investigation is still ongoing," Kennemer said. “Once we can figure out the answers to some of the questions that we have, we’ll be able to release another statement. But until then, we’re still waiting on the detectives to finish up their investigation.”

Ragland was booked into the Grayson County Jail where jail records indicate he remained on Tuesday morning. It was unclear whether Ragland has an attorney.
