RED HOUSE, W.Va. – An ongoing domestic dispute ended in gunfire and death Saturday morning according to Putnam County sheriff’s deputies.
A man identified as Curtis Adams allegedly entered the residence of his former girlfriend on Grandview Ridge Road near Red House Hill. Reports indicate he kicked in the door and when he got inside the former girlfriend shot him with a shotgun.
WSAZ-TV reported Adams and his cousin flagged down a passing motorist who took him to the Route 34 VFD where he died a short time later.
Deputies said the former couple had a history of problems and Adams had been in jail late last year on domestic violence charges.
The former girlfriend was not immediately charged in connection with the death. Deputies said the information would be given to prosecutors for possible presentment to a county grand jury.
There were five children sleeping in the residence at the time of the shooting.
