A Mud Fork man received a gunshot wound to the head shortly before noon yesterday. Neighbors called 911 at 11:12 a.m. reporting a loud dispute and shots fired. A short time later a call was received asking for law enforcement and EMS to respond to the scene.

David Sisson was found in a bedroom with a .38 caliber pistol on the floor, nearby, according to Calhoun Sheriff Allen Parsons. Two women were present at the time of the shooting. Parsons and Deputy Carl Ballengee responded to the call, with State Trooper Jeff Hunt.

Calhoun EMS said Sisson was conscious, although he suffered a wound to the back of the head. He was taken to Charleston Area Medical Center by HealthNet, where a report on his condition was not available late last night.

Sources at the scene indicated there had been a domestic dispute.

It was unclear whether Sisson was suffering from a self-inflicted wound, or the weapon was fired by another party.

Officers from Clay County also responded to the scene.
