SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Sheboygan police are still investigating after they say a 57-year-old Manitowoc man was shot and killed during a struggle Monday evening. 

Police were called to the area of Business Drive and Wilson Avenue around 5:05 p.m. Monday for a disturbance. When officers arrived, a 22-year-old man approached them saying there was a man suffering from gunshot wounds in a vehicle at the end of the parking lot. While the 22-year-old man was detained, police recovered a gun from him. 

Police found a 57-year-old Manitowoc man dead in a vehicle in the parking lot. A large frame firearm was also found in the vehicle. 

Sheboygan police say the 22-year-old was cooperative, telling officers he had driven the 57-year-old to the area so the 57-year-year could obtain money to pay for work that had been done on his vehicle. While in the parking lot, the 57-year-old allegedly pulled a handgun and a struggle ensued inside the vehicle. During the struggle, the 22-year-old was able to retrieve his own gun and fired two shots at the 57-year-old man. 

Sheboygan investigators say the investigation is ongoing and will be presented to the District Attorney's Office for review when complete.
