LAWRENCE, KS (KCTV) -

Authorities are investigating after a man was fatally shot during a fight with a Lawrence homeowner.

The victim has been identified as 32-year-old Trevor J. Mohawk.

Police said the preliminary investigation indicates that just before 1:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, Mohawk arrived at a home in the 1100 block of Connecticut Street, where the homeowners, a 45-year-old woman and 44-year-old man, were awoken by the sounds of  Mohawk on their porch.

The male homeowner armed himself with a firearm then exited the home and made contact with Mohawk.

The subsequent contact between the two men escalated into a physical confrontation, which resulted in Mohawk suffering fatal gunshot wounds and the homeowner suffering injuries consistent with a violent confrontation, police said.

No arrests have been made.

Once the investigation is completed, it will be turned over to the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office for charging consideration.
