KMOV -- A House Springs man is dead after being shot by his girlfriend’s father.
According to authorities, Michael Crutchfield, 22, was found dead Sunday evening after deputies responded to the scene of an apparent shooting.
Police say witnesses claim David Fugate, 48, arrived to pick up his daughter Sunday evening when she informed him that Crutchfield, her boyfriend, assaulted her.
Authorities say after hearing the news, Fugate and Crutchfield engaged in a verbal altercation. Fugate then allegedly pulled out a semi-automatic handgun from his waistband and shot Crutchfield multiple times.
Fugate is currently being held at the Jefferson County Jail with no bond.
