        ROSS TWP. — A domestic dispute ended in the shooting death of a 25-year-old man, the Butler County Sheriff's Office said Friday, but officials said they hadn't decided what charges, if any, would be filed.

        Dennis Powers was pronounced dead at University Hospital, where he was flown late Thursday night following an incident at his home in the 2100 block of Thrush Avenue.

        Police said they had pieced together this much by Friday afternoon: Mr. Powers lived in the same residence as JoAnne Webber, 19, and Danny Redkey, 54. Ms. Webber and Mr. Powers were involved in a domestic dispute, and Mr. Redkey tried to intervene.

        “Preliminary investigation indicates that (Mr.) Powers sustained a gunshot wound to his stomach area from a small-caliber pistol allegedly fired by (Mr.) Redkey,” a news release from the sheriff's office says. One of the parties then called 911 just before 10 p.m.

        Detective Monte Mayer, sheriff's spokesman, said it was unclear what relationships existed among the trio, and no cause of death had been released for Mr. Powers. A gun was taken from the scene, he said.
