Man shot to death in Knox Township; murder charges filed against alleged assailant

LISBON – A 46-year-old man was fatally shot just before midnight Tuesday in a Knox Township trailer park.

Columbiana County Sheriff’s investigators said Michael Fisher was fatally shot on the porch of his Country Squire Mobile Home Park residence.

The man’s neighbor, Frank Gorichky, 53, was arrested on murder charges. Investigators believe Gorichky shot Fisher once during an argument on his porch on Kevin Drive.

Neighbors said they heard a commotion before the shooting.

Park manager Angelika Dean said this is the first shooting in the park since she became manager.

“One of my residents came back and told me that he heard a shot gun. I went and seen and don’t want to believe it,” said park manager Agelika Dean.

The state Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation was called to help process the crime scene.
