Domestic dispute leads to shooting
After the Orange County Sheriff's Office got an early morning call for a domestic dispute in Lake of the Woods yesterday, a security guard went to investigate, according to state police.
When the guard got to the residence where the dispute was suspected, around 12:37 a.m., he heard arguing and knocked on the door, said Sgt. F.L. Tyler of the state police.
The man who answered the door at the house in Locust Grove on Wilderness Drive "became combative with the security guard," Tyler said, and then he assaulted the security guard.
Tyler said the guard then pulled his weapon and shot the man in his hip.
He said the injuries did not appear to be life-threatening and the state police are investigating the call.
Charges are yet to be filed and state police are not releasing names of anyone involved because the incident is under investigation, Tyler said.
