Ricky Delawder, 40, was shot once after retreating inside his home at 10744 Haddix Road in Mad River Twp. on Friday night. Clark County Sheriff’s Office’s Sgt. Scott Elliott said Delawder was fighting with a man he knows, Willie Russell, 23, address at large, outside the home when Russell allegedly pulled a gun. Delawder reportedly ran inside and shut the door, but Russell is accused of firing through the door at least three times, striking Delawder once.
Elliott said Delawder’s three daughters, who are 8 years old and younger, were inside when the bullets were fired. One of the girls was standing next to her father when he was shot, Elliott said.
