The Ross County Sheriff's Department is investigating an apparent suicide that occurred on the 200-block of Black Run Road, Monday morning. Sgt. Mike Preston confirmed deputies were on the scene investigating a domestic incident involving a man and woman.
According to a release from the Sheriff's Office, 56-year-old Randy Cockrell went into the house after being told not to by deputies. A short time later, deputies heard a single gunshot and found Cockrell dead next to a revolver.
Authorities say no one else was in the residence at the time of the shooting, so it is believed the fatal gunshot wound was self inflicted.
