February 2, 2018: Shooting in Eskdale

On February 2, 2018 at 8:27 p.m. a shooting was reported in the 9900 block of Cabin Creek Road.  Metro 911 received reports one man had shot another and both were still at the scene in the street.  

Upon arrival Deputies found one man dead from apparent gunshots.  The shooter was seated nearby and has since been detained.
Detectives are now on scene investigating.  They are examining the evidence and interviewing witnesses.  Thirteen shell casings from fired bullets and the handgun believed to have fired them have been located.  Preliminarily it appears only the one firearm and one shooter were involved.
The nature of the relationship between the two adult men involved is being investigated as will be the cause of the dispute that led to the shooting.
No decision has yet been reached on what, if any, criminal charges will be filed in the matter.
