HAMILTON - Officials say an off-duty corrections officer fatally shot an armed man in Hamilton early Saturday morning.
A neighbor who witnessed the incident told investigators that Dominic Neal was walking up to the off-duty officer’s home on Vicky Court while he was outside smoking.
The witness says Neal then pulled out a gun and the resident told him not to fire. Then, apparently out of self-defense, the homeowner fired three times, striking Neal once.
The resident's girlfriend, who was inside the home during the shooting, has a domestic violence restraining order against Neal.
Neal was taken to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
No charges have been filed.
