HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Huntsville Police are investigating a deadly shooting in North Huntsville. It happened before 8:45 a.m. at 431 Edgemont Drive.

The victim, 35-year-old Kelvin Kenzenski Howard, died at the scene. Police said Howard was fighting with 18-year-old Shaquille Baker inside the home.

Investigators said the two were pushed out of the house, and that's when Baker shot Howard.

It's unclear why the men were fighting in the first place.

Huntsville Police continue to investigate. Baker was charged with murder and booked into the Madison County Metro Jail. His bond has not been set.

This is the tenth homicide in Huntsville in 2014.
