The sheriff's department says the victim is 40-year-old Mark Wayne Roberts from the Cedar Creek area. 21-year-old Robert Higginbotham of Athens under went surgery last night of gun shot wounds.

The shooting happened around 4:45 p.m. yesterday in the Henderson County town of Mabank. Sheriff's deputies were called to a mobile home on Thunderbird Drive.

That's near the Cedar Creek Reservoir. When they got there, Roberts was found inside dead. After being shot, deputies say Higginbotham ran to a home on Osage Drive to get help.
