KSCO makes arrest in shooting, sparked allegedly by fight over drone

Kern County deputies arrested a man Friday following a shooting in Lake Isabella.

Deputies found a 52-year-old man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds around 7 p.m. on Scovern and Steensen streets. The man was taken to the hospital and stablized.

A short time later, deputies found a suspect in a nearby front yard.

Deputies arrested 33-year-old Alfred Neith. While searching the scene, deputies seized a handgun.

Deputies believe the shooting happened after Neith had an argument with the other man over Neith's use of a drone in the area.

Anyone with information helpful to the investigation is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at (661) 861-3110 or the Secret Witness hotline at 322-4040.
