TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) -

One man is dead after being shot in the chest following a domestic dispute.

The shooting happened Wednesday afternoon at a home located on the 700 block of Lodge Avenue in south Toledo.

When police arrived on scene, they found 59-year-old gunshot victim Bernard Neyland and 53-year-old Lakita Wilson, suffering from multiple hatchet wounds.

Neyland was pronounced dead at the University of Toledo Medical Center.

Wilson was treated for her injuries which were non life-threatening.

Police say initial accounts of the incident indicate that Neyland was attacking Wilson. The relationship between the two is still unclear. 

According to police, neighbor Benjamin Hand, 29, witnessed the assault and shot the 50-year-old man at least once to end the attack on Wilson.

Detectives are interviewing Hand as this investigation is ongoing and he has not been charged and are working to determine if this is a justifiable homicide. 

Sergeant Kevan Toney said police are also investigating whether Hand had a permit for his gun. Once TPD is done with the investigation, they will give it to the Lucas County Prosecutor. 

The Prosecutor then will decide whether to present the case to a Lucas County Grand Jury. 

This is Toledo's 22nd homicide of the year.

The autopsy is still ongoing.

Anyone with any information regarding the incident is encouraged to called Crime Stoppers at 419-255-1111.
