Fulton Police Chief Steve Myers said the department is investigating the shooting death of a Fulton man that took place early Saturday morning.

Official reports say around 3 a.m. officers were called to the 600 block of Jefferson Street to a report of shots fired.

"Usually, it's pretty much safe here, there's nothing that really takes you, in particular, there's nothing that would ever strike me as harmful, it's safe but with something like that happening, it just makes you think," said Gerard Giboney, a Fulton Resident.

When officers arrived they said they found a man who had entered a home and was shot by someone living there.

The victim was transported to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Officers say the man who fired the gun is cooperating with authorities.

Neighbors in the area said the man walked into the wrong house.

"He was intoxicated last night and he was just trying to get to his friends' house and they live right next to him and he pretty much walked into the wrong house and I heard he got shot in the heart," said Isaiah Wolfe, a Fulton Resident.

Chief Myers said today it's not clear if they will recommend criminal charges in the case.

"It's just a big misunderstanding, it's sad it had to go down like that but what can you do that's life," said Wolfe.
