A man is dead following an altercation in Jefferson County late on Saturday evening. The incident happened at a home on McLaughlin Street in Adena.
According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, a 47-year-old man was involved in the altercation and then died shortly after.
Police say the man from Oklahoma stormed inside the home where his ex-girlfriend lives and began fighting with another man inside the home.
During the fight, police officials say that the man fell and hit his head on a piece of furniture. The two continued fighting until they both walked outside where the man collapsed.
When medics arrived they transported the man to the Harrison County Community Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
According to investigators, at this time it looks like the man inside the home was acting in self-defense, so no one is currently facing any charges. However, Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney Jane Hanlin will make the ultimate decision.
The man was taken to Cuyahoga County for an autopsy. The incident remains under investigation.
