The victim who Holsinger allegedly shot did not live at the residence, but was part of the family, Ross said.

“At this time we believe it is a domestic dispute,” Ross said, adding that the department has been called to the residence on previous occasions.

Ross said that he believed the victim to be in critical condition when he was taken to the hospital from the scene.

“Our investigation is pending at this time as we get statements from neighbors and everyone involved,” Ross said.
