DANIA BEACH, Fla. – A man was shot and killed Friday night during an argument with a woman in Dania Beach.

Andrea Allen was arrested in connection with the shooting of death of Tommie King, Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Dani Moschella said.

Moschella said there was an argument that led to King, 52, being shot.

"It's unclear at this point what they were arguing about," Moschella told Local 10 News. "That argument escalated and she shot him."

King's sister said he was a mechanic in Dania Beach. She said Allen, 27, was an acquaintance of his, but she didn't know much about the shooting.

"We really don't know outside of what the police have already told you guys," Mary Lockett told Local 10.

Allen faces one count of second-degree murder.
