Orangeburg County, SC (WLTX) - Orangeburg County deputies say a domestic fight between a man and a woman ended with the man's death.

Officers say the incident happened at a home in the town of North on Sunday.

According to Orangeburg Sheriff Leroy Ravenell, the argument started when the man found paperwork in the woman's purse. Officers say the paperwork said that he was listed as a suspect in another town.

Investigators say the two started arguing, and the woman left the house; however, investigators say the man went out into the yard and dragged her back inside. Deputies say the man also hit her in the back of the head and threw her to the floor.

Officers say the man's grandfather, who was also in the home, told the man to stop hitting her and leave the house. The woman then found a handgun and fired a shot, which hit a cordless drill inside the home. According to officers, the man charged and grabbed the woman. During this struggle, he was shot in the abdomen.

Ravenell says his officers have not yet decided if charges will be filed in this case.
