Shortly after 3 a.m., a physician at a local hospital informed law enforcement that he was treating a person for a non-lethal gunshot wound. Based on information from the hospital, deputies drove to a home on the 700 block of Klau Mine Road where they found the body of Lawson in front of a doorway.
