Man identified after fatal domestic situation in McDonald

Posted: Updated:

McDonald, Ohio - Police and The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation are investigating a domestic situation on Indiana Avenue in McDonald.

McDonald Police Chief Lou Ronghi said officers were called to 912 Indiana Avenue in reference to shots being fired shortly after 3 p.m. on Wednesday.

"Two officers knocked, they entered the home, they were confronted by a gentleman who was up on a stairway, (he) had a fire arm," said Chief Ronghi. "Officers advised him to put the firearm down that's when he turned the firearm on himself and took his own life."

Ronghi identified the man as 46 year-old James Fedoruk.

Fedoruk's wife and adult son were also home at the time.

Ronghi said it's unclear what lead up to the event but says this is the first time officers have been called to the home for a domestic situation.

"We're still looking into it. We know some type of domestic issue but we don't know the whole circumstances behind it," said Ronghi.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation is assisting with the investigation.
