FAYETTE COUNTY, Tenn. — A teenager died after being shot by his half-brother during an argument over a honey bun, according to authorities.

The Fayette County Sheriff's Department said 18-year-old Marcus Jones was found dead from a gunshot wound around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday at a house on Feathers Chapel Drive in Tennessee.

His half-brother, 34-year-old Jerome Howse, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder and illegal gun possession, according to WREG.

The sheriff's office said the two were arguing over "a small sum of money and a honey bun."

Jones' Facebook account indicated he had recently graduated from Fayette Ware High School.
