      Man Involved in Deadly Fight Going to Court This Week

      Lynchburg, VA - The man police say was involved in a deadly fight near the intersection of 5th and Polk Streets in Lynchburg will head to court later this week.

      Shawn Lee Johnson is being held without bond, charged with second-degree murder.

      Police say at around 2:15 a.m. Sunday, Johnson and Thomas Belford got into a fight as people were leaving a party at the Old Dominion Lodge.

      Belford was taken to the hospital where he later died.

      The medical examiner has not determined an official cause of death.

      A judge is expected to advise Johnson in court this Friday.
