A homicide investigation is underway in Blount County after a man was found shot to death Wednesday afternoon.

According to the Blount County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to a home on Tawbush Road in Locust Fork when they received a call about a “domestic situation.” When they arrived, they found a 34-year-old male deceased.

Authorities say the man was in a romantic relationship with the woman whose home they responded to, and had a history of domestic violence with this man. The man showed up there unannounced, while the woman and her 14-year-old son were home.

During the altercation, a 12-gauge shotgun was discharged twice, but it's unclear who fired it.

Chief Deputy Bill Fairy says no arrests have been made, and they’re not sure if this will even result in an arrest.

The identity of the victim is being withheld pending notification of the family.
