January16--  Vidalia police are investigating the death of a 23-year-old Vidalia man.

According to police, James Price died Wednesday morning at a Savannah hospital after being shot late Tuesday afternoon at his residence at 911-A Georgia Street.

When Detective Randy Holcomb arrived at the scene, he observed 39-year-old Michael Madison standing in front of the residence.  Madison said he had heard his daughter, 18-year-old Courtney Madison and Price, her boyfriend, fighting inside the house.  He told police he kicked in the front door and that Price pointed a gun at him and fired.  Madison fired his own gun back at Price who police found laying on the floor, but conscious and speaking.  He was taken to Meadows Regional Medical Center in Vidalia and later airlifted to Savannah.

Police say a chrome pistol and a spent shell casing were found on the floor near Price.

Michael Madison was taken to the Vidalia Police Department for questioning. 

Police Chief Frank Waits says the case is under investigation.
