NEW CASTLE — A Mahoning Township man involved in a weekend shooting has died.

Joseph Lupo, 50, of 4812 W. Main St. in Hillsville was pronounced dead Thursday by the Mahoning County, Ohio, coroner’s office.

Lupo was shot in the head during what Pennsylvania state police have described as a domestic incident. His wife, Caroline Lupo, 50, also was shot — in the abdomen and leg. She remains hospitalized in St. Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown.

Joseph Lupo also had been taken to that facility, where he died.

Police have not said who did the shooting in the incident. They indicated they need to speak with Caroline Lupo before releasing additional details.

News organizations in Ohio have said Lupo was a former deputy in the Mahoning County sheriff’s department in Ohio. He left the department in 2005.
