LAGRANGE TOWNSHIP, Ohio — The Lorain County Sheriff's Office is investigating a homicide following a domestic dispute that left a man dead Sunday evening.

While on their way to the scene, deputies were informed that the man who had been shot was believed to be dead.

Deputies and LaGrange Township Fire crews arrived on scene and found a man who had been shot in the chest. Lifesaving measures were performed but the man was pronounced dead on the scene.
