One person is dead after a shooting October 19th near Mineola.

Shortly after 8:30 p.m. the Wood County Sheriff's office received a 911 call with regard to a shooting at 861 CR 2231 in the Lake Holbrook area.

The caller said her husband had shot a man with a rifle after the man had come onto the property threatening the couple.

When deputies arrived, the victim, Stephen Young, was found lying on the ground in the front yard of the residence with a single gun shot wound to the chest.

Paramedics attempted to care flight Young, then diverted to Quitman where he was pronounced dead by Pct. 4 Judge Cindy Weems.

The Sheriff's Department interviewed everyone at the scene, however, no arrests have been made as of this time.

The investigation is continuing.
