Cleveland Police are investigating their first murder of 2015.
38-year-old Delvon Kelley was shot in the leg at his home on Westview New Years Day.
Police say Kelley was having an argument with his girlfriend's father, when the father allegedly pulled out a gun and shot him in the upper leg.
EMS rushed Kelley to Metro, where he died.
Family members say the father was upset, because Kelley was apparently abusive towards his daughter and had beaten her up several times.
The father has not yet been charged and is not in custody.
