PITTSBURG COUNTY, OK -- Pittsburg County Commissioners are grieving -- following the death of District 3 commissioner, Ronnie Young.
"He was well-received and doing a pretty decent job as far as I know," said District 1 Commissioner, Gene Rogers. "He was a real good fella. It was a shock to me...I'll admit, and we're gonna miss him greatly."
McAlester Police officials say Young was unresponsive when they found him at his home Thursday morning.
They're still investigating the cause of death.
Rogers says the county will hold a special election to fill Young's position. He says they plan on announcing it within the next month.
