QUEENSBURY, N.Y. -- The Warren County Sheriff’s Department says the incident spins out of an apparent love triangle among the deceased, Ralph Runnalls, homeowner Paul Wells, 55, and the mother of Wells’ son, 43-year-old Jacquelyn Keegan.
"They saw him drive down the driveway, so they approached him in the driveway and asked him to leave and he refused to leave," said Warren County Sheriff Bud York. "Apparently one of them was going to call 911 and that's when Runnells pulled out a gun and started shooting at them and they ran in the house and he followed them in."
Inside Wells' Bay Road kitchen is where the sheriff says they found Ralph Runnalls dead and Wells and Keegan both with apparent gunshot wounds.
"He forced his way into the house shooting and it appears that the family of Paul Wells were defending themselves," said York.
The sheriff says Runnalls had a handgun, Wells a shotgun. The only other witness present was Wells' teenage son, who wasn't injured.
Police won't confirm the number of shots fired, nor how Runnalls died.
"I want the forensic unit from the State Police to go over the scene to make sure we can corroborate what our witnesses are telling us," said York. "We're getting our information from the 18-year-old boy. I believe he's 18 and from the two victims themselves."
The Sheriff's department says they're interviewing Wells' son and Bay Road neighbors. Meanwhile, we're still waiting to hear the latest on Wells' and Keegan's conditions. The Sheriff's department says charges may be pending for the two, but that may depend largely on whether or not they were acting in self-defense.
