LEBANON A Wilson County man died early yesterday morning after being shot Thursday night during a dispute with another man.

James Freels, 28, died at Vanderbilt University Medical Center after he was shot in the abdomen with a shotgun at about 10:30 p.m. Wilson County Sheriff's Department investigators said Brian Netherton, 27, is their suspect in the shooting.

The dispute at Netherton's home, 105 Lone Pine Drive north of Lebanon, was described by detective Dayton Jamison as a ''domestic'' disagreement over a woman.

''It looks like it has been going on for an extended period of time,'' Jamison said.

Freels and his younger brother drove to Netherton's house and, Netherton said, the older Freels tried to provoke a fight outside, Jamison said. Netherton retreated to his house, but Freels followed and was shot when he tried to continue the assault, Jamison said.

Freels fled in the truck with his brother and was taken to a hospital. He was then airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Jamison said.

He said Netherton had not been charged, but the facts will be presented to the July session of the Wilson County grand jury.
