The shooting occurred inside Vivian Carter Apartments, 6401 S. Yale Ave., at 4:40 p.m., police said. Two men — Robert Wesley, 80, and James Vine, 69 — had been arguing when Vine allegedly pulled out a gun and shot Wesley in the chest.

Vine was arrested and charged with one count of first degree murder, police said.
