State Troopers received a report Thursday morning that Dennis Alick, age 27, was killed. Brian Fancyboy, age 23, has been arrested for murder.

Trooper Information Officer Megan Peters says that the shots were fired from a shotgun on the front steps of a home where a party had been occurring inside. Other people were around at the time of the shooting. Peters reports that alcohol was involved, and that Alick and Fancyboy knew each other.
