LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Authorities with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office have arrested a suspect after an investigation into a man who was found unresponsive on Sunday night at the Murphy's USA fuel station at the Highway 14 Wal-Mart.

Deputies were called to the scene around 10:00 p.m. on Sunday night where they found a man lying on the ground unresponsive. Emergency personnel were called to the scene and they transported him to a local hospital for treatment for severe head trauma.

Authorities with the CPSO say an investigation revealed a physical altercation happened between the victim and 28-year-old Wilford Jack III of Lake Charles in reference to a dispute over the use of one of the fuel pumps.

The victim, who has not been identified, remained in a local hospital as of Monday morning in "guarded, but stable condition."
