A 34-year-old Bloomington man who was arrested and charged with murder Saturday was remanded into the Monroe County Correctional Center, according to a release from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. 

Police are investigating the death of a person whose body was found with an apparent gunshot wound to the head after officers responded to a call about an unknown disturbance at 1:30 a.m. Saturday. 

Neighbors of the residence reported that the people living there often fight. 

Upon arrival, deputies also found an AR-15-style rifle and a civilian-style stun gun/tazer near the body. 

The suspect, Bryce Leighton, was then transported to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office for further investigation before being remanded. His trial date has not yet been set.  

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office Detective Division and Monroe County Coroner’s Office are still investigating the matter.
