Hendry Man Shot Dead

Domestic Disturbance Related Shooting Say Investigators

LABELLE, FL. -- A Hendry county man was found shot dead in Pioneer Plantation. On January 4, 2010 at approximately 6:20 p.m., the Hendry County Sheriff's Office received a call telling dispatchers they needed an ambulance, that a man had been shot. 

Deputies, along with medical personnel, arrived at 4850 8th Street in Pioneer Plantation, a small quiet rural community located in central Hendry County between LaBelle and Clewiston, finding 30 year old Shelton Ray Dunlap, Jr. laying on the ground in the front yard.  He was pronounced dead on scene by emergency personnel due to a gunshot wound.

The shooter, along with witnesses and family members were immediately removed by law enforcement personnel and transported to the Sheriff's Office for questioning.  While investigators have determined that the shooting was domestic related, they are not sure of the motive at this time. 

There has been no arrest made yet, and the incident is under investigation, says the Sheriff's Department.
