COLLEGE STATION, TX (KXXV) -

College Station police said a man died during a fight last Tuesday on the 2400 block of Bosque Dr.

Police said a 26-year-old woman and a man, Tyrone Shephard, got into an argument, and Shephard assaulted the woman with his fists. Shephard and the woman lived together at the residence where the assault took place.

The woman sustained non-life threatening injuries during this incident.

She called 38-year-old Ross Batten and told him about the assault. Batten then arrived at the residence and forced his way through the door.

Police said Batten started a fight with Shephard. During the fight, Batten fell to the floor and stopped breathing.

The woman involved in the incident called police for help after Batten fell.

When police arrived, they met Shephard outside the residence, and he directed officers to Batten. Officers began to preform CPR until medics arrives.

Batten was pronounced dead shortly after.

The preliminary investigation showed that Batten had a major heart attack during the fight, and police believe that this was the cause of his death.

Tyrone Shephard was arrested on scene for a class A Family Violence Assault.  He has not been charged with any other crime.  This case is still under investigation.  Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the College Station Police Department at 979-764-3600.
