The Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) technology is a leading candidate for a 100-kiloton class detector for electron neutrino appearance in a long-baseline muon-neutrino beam and for nucleon decay within the stable Argon nucleus, both with excellent efficiency and background rejection. The US has taken its first steps toward development of the technology by constructing and operating small LArTPC detectors, the latest being the ¼-ton detector of the ArgoNeuT collaboration. In a recent 6-month run in the low-energy configuration of the NuMI neutrino beam at Fermilab, the collaboration recorded a large sample of neutrino events. This paper reports on the characteristics of that data, the preliminary steps to reduce the data to a sample of neutrino-induced events, and a description of an event consistent with a charged current quasi-elastic electron neutrino interaction.
