One dead after shooting incident in Davison County

One person is dead following a Sunday morning shooting incident northwest of Mitchell in rural Davison County.

Davison County Sheriff Steve Harr says a suspect reportedly fired two shots at a family member inside a residence and then fled. No one was hit.

Harr says when a deputy arrived, he was told the suspect had returned to the residence.

The suspect had gone into the backyard where he was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot.

Harr says the suspect and two others were in the residence when the initial shooting occurred. The three were related.
