MANDEVILLE -- A 19-year-old man was fatally shot after authorities say he was arguing with another man about a female.

The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office says in a statement that Vincent Cuccia was shot several times Saturday morning and rushed to a nearby hospital, but died of his injuries.

Deputies arrested 19-year-old Jake Mills on a charge of second-degree murder.

The statement says investigators believe Cuccia and Mills were arguing over a female, and that the argument resulted in Mills shooting Cuccia.

It's unclear if Mills has an attorney.
