Update: Man dies from gunshot wound

A 24-year-old Oxford man died overnight Tuesday, hours after suffering a gunshot wound while at Stevenson Dam.

Monroe Police Capt. Keith White told The Monroe Courier that an individual who was observing wildlife at the small area below the dam called police at 5:26 p.m. to report hearing a gunshot. When police arrived, White said officers found a man suffering from a gunshot wound.

“There is no indication of foul play,” said White. “The incident remains under investigation.”

The man was transported to St. Vincent’s Hospital with what White termed “life threatening” injuries at the time. The man died some hours later. White said the case now goes to the medical examiner’s office for a final determination of cause of death.
