KNOX TWP., Ohio - The suspect in a Knox Township  murder is scheduled to appear in the Columbiana County Municipal Court on Friday at 10 a.m.

A news release from the Sheriff says that deputies responded to a reported shooting at the Country Squire Mobile home park at  about  11:45 Tuesday night.

Officers found  the body of 46-year-old Michael Fisher on the porch of a Kevin Drive home.

The resident of the home, 54-year-old Frank Gorichky was taken into custody and charged with murder.

Sheriff Raymond Stone says the two men who lived across the street from each other.

"Apparently there was some kind of an argument between the two gentlemen and then one shot was fired," says Stone.

According to neighbors the two men had been drinking and had a loud argument earlier in the evening, then they calmed down and it was quiet for some time before Fisher returned to the porch.

A neighbor who heard the shot said Fisher was lying on the porch of the trailer bleeding when he got to the scene.

"He was moving his legs and his arms. Frank was trying to stop the blood," says neighbor Calib Rastetter.

Gorichky remains in the Columbiana County  Jail.
