Jan. 27 (UPI) -- Tennessee authorities said Wednesday they are looking for a 70-year-old man in connection with the shooting deaths of two duck hunters in Obion County.
David Vowell, of Martin, Tenn., remained at large Tuesday evening after county District Attorney Tommy Thomas said a witness had emerged in the deaths of Chance Black, 26, and Zachary Grooms, 25, on Monday morning at a Reelfoot Lake duck blind.
Black was the son of a chief deputy at the Weakley County Sheriff's Department and worked as a manager at a sporting goods store in Union City, Tenn.
"What has taken place is hard to process," Seth Dortch, marketing manager of Final Flight Outfitters, where Black worked, said. "No duck is worth the life of a man. What we do know is that God is our refuge and strength, even in the hardest of times."
A Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Twitter post listed Vowell as armed and dangerous in seeking information on his whereabouts.
Thomas said it appeared Vowell had approached Black and Grooms at the duck blind where an argument ensued, leading to the shooting. Authorities confiscated a boat and car that had been in Vowell's possession. He fled on foot after the shooting.
