Officers were dispatched to a shooting call at the above address and were told Mr. McFarland arrived at the residence to see his ex-girlfriend.  The woman's stepfather (suspect) refused to let McFarland inside the home.  When McFarland tried to force his way inside, the suspect retrieved a pistol.  The confrontation continued at the front door and ended in the front yard with the suspect fatally shooting McFarland.  The suspect then left the scene before officers arrived.  He was later located and questioned.
