Sylvester Police arrested 19-year-old Zackery Dale Downing, at his York Road home Thursday. 

Police say Downing shot 22-year-old Efram Barber in the hip yesterday afternoon.

Witnesses told police that the shooting happened in the 100 block of Roe Street, after what seemed like an argument between the two men.

SPD says that witnesses saw Barber running away from Downing and reported hearing multiple gun shots. Downing was seen driving away in a white truck.

He was placed into the Worth County Jail last night.

So far, no bond has been set, and Downing remains in jail.

Barber was treated at Phoebe Putney, but is not there as a patient today.
