Edmonton police have charged a 31-year-old man with second-degree murder in the shooting death of another man in December.

The victim, 45-year-old Arthur Charles Edward Beauchamp, was found seriously injured outside an apartment building near 103rd Avenue and 115th Street on Dec. 3.

Police had been responding to a 911 call about a family dispute.

Beauchamp was taken to hospital where he died of his injuries. An autopsy confirmed he died from a gunshot wound and that the manner of death was homicide.
