Springfield, Ohio — Authorities have arrested a man suspected in a July shooting incident that was connected to a dispute over a confederate flag.

Investigators with the Clark County Sheriff's office arrested Frederick A. Griffin Jr. without incident at his 1215 West Liberty St. home on Thursday, August 14.

The 18-year-old Griffin is suspected in a July 28 shooting of 27-year-old Joshua Knox. The shooting incident apparently stemmed from an argument about a confederate flag Knox's cousin was carrying at the Clark County Fair. Knox later told the News-Sun he was neither at the fair that day nor was he involved in the argument.
