A man died after he was shot early Saturday morning during a domestic dispute in Englewood.

The Englewood Police Department was called around 2:45 a.m. to a house in the 1000 block of Michele Court on reports of a shooting, Sgt. Mike Lang said.

A 36-year-old man was shot and killed during a domestic dispute between household members, Lang said. An argument broke out, fueled in part by intoxication, he added.

It was believed the man was going to inflict deadly harm on another household member when he was shot, according to Lang.

No one else was injured.

“All persons involved in the incident have been identified and are cooperating with the investigation,” Lang said.

The shooting is being investigated as self-defense, and prosecutors will review the case, he said.

The identity of the deceased man has not yet been released.
