STEPHENS CITY, Va.The Frederick County Sheriff's Office in Virginia is investigating the death of a man who was found dead with a gunshot wound in his townhouse on Nottoway Drive at around 2:40 p.m. Sunday.

Authorities say they
 found evidence that a bullet went through the side of the victim's townhouse wall. The victim has been identified as James Trenary, 64. 

The discovery came after they arrested a man earlier that day on Sunday at around
12:30 a.m. near the same townhouse complex. Police say they arrested Eddie Debraux, 48, for firing gunshots during a dispute with someone in his neighborhood.

However, authorities say they believe there is no known connection between the victim and Debraux. They are currently trying to determine if the victim was hit by one of the bullets Debraux fired.

Debraux has been charged with three counts of destruction of property, reckless handling of a firearm, and discharging a firearm across a roadway.
