BEN WHEELER, Texas (AP) — An East Texas shooting has left one person dead.

The Van Zandt County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday night received a call about gunfire just outside of the town of Ben Wheeler.

KLTV-TV (http://bit.ly/1gP44bo ) reports neighbors say they heard some sort of confrontation before shots were fired. Deputies were on the scene for several hours early Thursday searching a car and a nearby home.

The sheriff's office did not immediately provide additional details Thursday.

Ben Wheeler is a town of about 500, located 65 miles southeast of Dallas.
