Two men shot each other during an argument in River Ridge on Wednesday afternoon, and one of them was killed, Jefferson Parish Sheriff Joseph Lopinto said. 

The gunfire erupted about noon in the 11100 block of Newton Street, where one of the men involved had an apartment, Lopinto said. They were both taken to University Medical Center, where a 28-year-old man was pronounced dead and 34-year-old man was listed in stable condition. 

Lopinto said the men knew each other, and it wasn't immediately clear what they were arguing about. The Sheriff's Office did not release the men's names. 

No other details were available.
