The Lafayette Police Department has released the name of the man who died of a gunshot wound.
Forty-nine year old Michael Davis died Saturday. Police say a domestic dispute started on Willow Street between a man and a woman. They both then got into separate cars fleeing the area. The man then fired at least two gunshots, striking the woman's car twice. The man crashed into a tree at the intersection of University Avenue and Simcoe Street, and was pronounced dead on the scene from a gunshot wound.
It is still unclear how the man was shot. Investigators say he was the only one with a gun, and they are hoping that autopsy results will determine whether the wound was accidental or intentional.
The case remains under investigation.
