One person dead, another injured in domestic dispute

A domestic dispute Sunday at a home in the 400 block of South Parkway East left one man dead, his girlfriend in the hospital, and her husband in jail.

Paramedics took the victims to The MED with multiple gunshot wounds.  Police said the man was dead on arrival, while the woman was in good condition.

Police took a suspect in the shooting into custody late Sunday morning.

The man's aunt said he lives at the house where the shooting took place.  According to the suspect's aunt, the man who was shot and killed had come to her nephew's house looking for her nephew's wife.

She said her nephew shot the man in self defense.

"You come to my house with a gun, (and) you're not supposed to be there, I'm going to defend myself," she said.

The woman added her nephew and his wife had been separated.

A Pastor who was driving past the house seconds after the shooting said he saw a woman who had also been driving by giving CPR to the man who later died.

The Pastor said the man was shot in the neck

Police released few details about the shooting, saying only that a physical altercation escalated into the shooting.
