EL DORADO, Ark. (AP) - Authorities say an El Dorado man has been shot to death.

Once inside, authorities say they found 38-year-old Lawrence E. Nelson Jr. with multiple gunshot wounds. The Union County Coroner pronounced him dead a short time later.

A 34-year-old California man was arrested on felony charges, including first-degree murder. He is scheduled to make a court appearance Friday.
