PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — A 46-year-old man was arrested Monday after a woman was shot and killed overnight, deputies said.

The shooting took place at about 1:30 a.m. in the 3300 block of Artesian Drive.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to a domestic dispute that was in progress. After they arrived at the scene, deputies learned that a woman had been shot multiple times.

Neighbors told WPTV that the victim ran across the street for help after she was shot.

Investigators said two neighbors were able to wrestle a shotgun away from the suspected gunman, identified as Yves Antoine, until deputies arrived.

The sheriff's office said deputies began life-saving measures on the injured woman until Palm Beach County Fire Rescue arrived.

The woman, identified as Nancie Elan, was taken to Delray Medical Center but later died from her injuries.

Antoine was arrested and booked at the main Palm Beach County on a charge of first-degree murder. Online jail records show he is being held without bond.
