A man was shot and killed in Goshen early Thursday, and the man wanted for questioning in the killing has turned himself in, the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office said.

Just before 1 a.m., deputies went to the 6500 block of Betty Drive to check on a report that a man had been shot.

The victim, whose name was not released, was taken to a local hospital where he died.

Allen Ray Horsley, 24, of Goshen, was named as a person of interest. Late Thursday afternoon he turned himself in after deputies spent the day searching for him.

“An argument resulted in a shooting,” sheriff’s spokeswoman Teresa Douglass said.

Social media reports helped convince Horsley to turn himself in, she said. He was being questioned by investigators, she said.
