Police are investigating the shooting death of a Lexington man.

Police say Gary Norton was shot to death inside his home located in the 400 block of Broadway in Lexington over the weekend. Monday, agents with the OSBI searched Norton's home for bullet holes and for bullet fragments.

Neighbors say Norton's son, 33-year-old Joshua Norton, lived in the house for five or six years on an off-and-on basis.

Neighbors say they heard loud noises coming from the house late at night over the weekend, but had no idea what happened until late Sunday.

Joshua Norton was arrested and transported to the Cleveland County jail on charges unrelated to his father's death. He has a long criminal record and has served time in prison.

Police have no suspects at this time in the death of Gary Norton.
