ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- A man was shot in the head and killed outside of a St. Augustine bar Saturday evening after an apparent argument.

The St. Augustine Police Department arrested Christopher Fries, 41. He faces a homicide charge.

Police spokesman Mark Samson said Fries and Paul Crookshank, 29, took a cab together to the Giggling Gator Pub and had a drink inside.

Samson said the two went outside and started arguing.  Someone from a nearby business overheard the argument and called police.

Samson explained a police officer arrived at the pub on King Street in downtown St. Augustine shortly after 8:30 p.m.  The officer then heard a gunshot and found two men in the parking lot.

Crookshank was shot in the head. He died on the way to the hospital.
