An update now on that argument turned deadly in Knox county.

The Knox County Coroner has determined that 33 year-old Paul Russell died from a gunshot wound to the chest.

The alleged shooter, 48 year-old Todd Godare, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Investigators say Russell and Godare got into an argument Wednesday, Russell had a baseball bat and Godare had a gun.

Police say Godare shot Russell, then fled. Godare was stopped two hours later, and authorities say that's when he shot himself with the same gun he allegedly shot Russell with.
