JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WHAS11) --Jeffersonville Police have arrested the suspected shooter in the French Quarter apartment shooting that happened just off of Middle Road.

Antonio Walker, 28, has been arrested and charged with murder.

The victim's family said 25-year-old Paris Hamilton is the man who was shot.

Jessica Hamilton was married to the victim for less than a year.  She says she and her husband were visiting friends at the French Quarter apartments when her husband and another man started arguing, because someone inside the apartment called someone a snitch.

"It was just a petty argument. Nobody should have been hurt over it. Paris was so amazing it didn't deserve to happen to him," Jennifer said.

She says the man then shot Hamilton in the chest and then fired several more shots.

Paris Hamilton has two daughters and a step daughter.

Police are still interviewing witnesses and say more arrests may be made in this case.

Jeffersonville High School was on lockdown but the lockdown has since been lifted.
