A Tennessee man was arrested for the shooting death of his uncle earlier today, said Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator.
Alan Wesley Jefferson was in a vehicle with family members traveling north on I-49 when he got into an argument with his nephew, 21-year-old Traveion Fields. Fields produced a gun and shot Jefferson in the back of the head. After the shooting, the driver of the vehicle turned around to take Jefferson to the hospital. Fields jumped out of the vehicle near North Forty Loop where he went to a residence and used the phone to contact the Sheriff's Office.
Jefferson died at Oshner LSU Medical Center. Fields was arrested in the 1600 block of North Forty Loop. He was booked into Caddo Correctional by Det. Demetrice Adams-Ellis for second-degree murder.
