Three members of a Kentucky family died and another is in critical condition after several shootings in two counties on Friday.

The first victim was found around 6:30 p.m. in Pulaski County, where deputies discovered a man lying beside the road about 200 feet from his home, dead from a suspected gunshot wound. the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office said.

The victim hasn't been publicly identified yet, but the shooting is believed to be linked to later shootings in Russell County.

About 30 minutes after the first victim was found, Pulaski County 911 dispatchers reached out to Kentucky State Police for assistance in locating a Ford F-150 driven by Angela Gosser, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported.  At around 7:25 p.m., Russell County dispatchers asked state police to respond to a shooting at Angela Gosser’s brother's home in Jamestown.

Troopers arrived to find Gosser dead from a gunshot wound and her brother — 58-year-old Darryl Wilson — critically wounded. He was taken to the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, according to state police, who said their initial investigation revealed that Gosser forced her way into her brother’s home, and they exchanged gunfire, WLEX reported.

While they were on the scene, troopers were asked to conduct a welfare check on Angela Gosser and Darryl Wilson’s sister, 57-year-old Jennifer Wilson. Family members had been unable to reach her and were concerned. State police and Russell County deputies headed that way and found Jennifer Wilson dead in the driver’s seat of a Toyota Camry that was partially off the road.

State police investigators said they believe Angela Gosser fired multiple rounds into the passenger window of the Camry as her sister was driving, striking her in the head, then went to her brother’s house.

Wilson Funeral Home Director Daniel Wilson, not related to the three siblings, told the Herald-Leader that the first victim was Angela Gosser’s 73-year-old husband, Larry Gosser, a retired Kentucky Fish and Wildlife officer. Wilson, a friend of the family, said his funeral home was handling the arrangements for all three victims.

Pulaski County officials would not confirm the victim there was Larry Gosser, but said his body had been sent to Frankfurt for an autopsy.

Investigators have not provided any information about a possible motive.
