SAD NEWS: Kentucky Government Emergency indoors as unknown Gun men invade the city shot down all activities

And in what authorities say is connected to that incident, a man in Pulaski County was found dead of a gunshot wound in a separate shooting, Pulaski County sheriff’s officials said.

A local funeral director said that victim was the husband of the woman who shot her siblings. Authorities have not confirmed that information.

“She shot her husband first,” Wilson Funeral Home Director Daniel Wilson told the Herald-Leader Saturday.

“The investigation is very much ongoing,” Pulaski County Coroner Clyde Strunk said Saturday. “It’s still very raw.”

The investigation began at about 6:30 p.m. Friday in Pulaski County, when the sheriff’s office there was alerted to a shooting victim on Brown Ridge Road, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.

When deputies arrived, they found “a male victim lying beside the road approximately 200 feet from his residence deceased from what appeared to be a gunshot wound,” sheriff officials said.

That man was Larry V. Gosser, a retired Kentucky Fish and Wildlife officer, Wilson said.

Kentucky State Police said Pulaski County 911 operators contacted them at 7 p.m. and asked for help finding a Ford F-150 driven by Angela Gosser, 56, of Russell Springs.

Angela and Larry Gosser were married, Wilson said.

At 7:24 p.m., Russell County 911 operators called state police, asking them to respond to a shooting at Darryl Wilson’s home in Jamestown, where they found him and Angela Gosser shot.

Darryl Wilson is Gosser’s brother, state police officials said in a news release.

In the early stages of the investigation, state police officers said in a Saturday news release they believe Gosser went to Wilson’s home on South Ky. 619 and forced her way inside with a gun.

State authorities said Gosser and Wilson exchanged gunfire, and both were shot.

Wilson was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital with life-threatening injuries, state police said. Gosser was pronounced dead at the scene by the Russell County coroner, authorities said.

While they were at Darryl Wilson’s home, state police said they were asked to do a welfare check on Gosser’s sister, Jennifer Wilson, 57, of Russell Springs. Family members had been unable to reach her and were concerned about her safety, relatives told police.

State police said they, along with Russell County sheriff’s deputies, went to Hammond Road in Russell Springs, where they found Jennifer Wilson fatally shot in the driver’s seat of a Toyota Camry that was partially off the road.

It appears, state police said in their release, that before she went to her brother’s house, Gosser had fired multiple rounds into the passenger side of a vehicle her sister was driving, striking her in the head.

Jennifer Wilson was pronounced dead by the Russell County coroner, officials said.

The funeral director, Daniel Wilson, said Wilson Funeral Home is handling arrangements for Larry V. Gosser, Angela Gosser and Jennifer Wilson. He offered details of the individuals’ identity on Facebook Saturday.

He said he is not related to the family but was their neighbor.

“They’ve always been close to our family, and it’s an honor to serve them,” he said.

On Saturday afternoon, Strunk declined to identify the 73-year-old man who was found dead in Pulaski County.

He also did not say whether the man was a family member of Gosser, Jennifer Wilson or Darryl Wilson.

Strunk said the man’s body was taken to Frankfort for an autopsy.

The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office is handling the case involving the 73-year-old man.

“These shooting investigations are preliminary, but Sheriff (Bobby) Jones wants everyone to know that there is no further danger to the public,” Pulaski County officials said.
