According to police, Dominick Alexander Yarbrough was also injured in the incident, and was taken to the hospital. Yarbrough, the fiance of Egan, was shot in the leg.

Police say an argument inside the mobile home led to the shooting, but they don’t know what led to the argument.

Police have released that a handgun was involved. A neighbor living at a nearby trailer tells Eyewitness News he heard a gunshot Monday night.

Foster is charged with Robbery and Murder. He’s being held in the Hopkins County Jail.
