BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police have arrested a 48-year-old man accused of shooting a man inside a Fells Point bar last month.

Phillip West has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Rodney Beamon. He turned himself into detectives on Monday.

West and Beamon reportedly got into an argument while inside a bar in the 700 block of S. Broadway, but it then spilled outside.
