A shooting on the east side of the City of Grove has left a man dead and a woman injured.
Delaware County Sheriff's Department stated that a woman reported the shooting at 5:16 a.m. on the 32000 block of S. 658 Road. Upon arriving on the scene, the Sheriff's office discovered a man's body in the front yard, deceased from a fatal gunshot wound. The woman was found inside the house and taken to the hospital, where she is expected to make a full recovery.
The woman recounted the attack, saying that her boyfriend worked the night shift and had not returned home from work yet. She approached the front door to turn on the porch light and was shot through the wrist.
The Sheriff's Department is working with limited clues and information.
“There’s no surveillance, and no neighbors, no witnesses,” said Undersheriff Tracy Shaw. “If it wasn’t for [the woman], we would not have any information right now and we would be at a complete loss.”
The victims' names have not been released.
