Details are limited as it's an active scene, but authorities were called out to the 6300 block of West Bellfort Ave. around 1 p.m. That's where officials say a person was shot following what was only described as a "verbal altercation." 

The person was pronounced dead at the scene. 


No other information was made available, as of this writing, so it's unclear if police have a suspect in custody. 

This is a developing story.
