Shooting Report

Only three hours after tying the knot, Richard Brunson, 50, shot his new wife, Laurette Kenny Brunson, 38, in the abdomen after she threw a plate of wedding reception macaroni salad at him.

Vicki Holmes, a neighbor from across the street, stated that the ceremony took place at 2 p.m. and, “it was a lovely little ceremony on the front porch with about thirty relatives and friends.” Three of which were Laurette’s children.

According to Sergeant Mann, “Brunson used a .22 caliber gun to shoot his wife.” The calamity took place around 5 p.m. and by the time police arrived, Kenny Brunson had fled the scene and his whereabouts are still unknown.

Laurette Brunson was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital and is in satisfactory condition according to hospital officials.

    We’ll have to do some work to figure out the audio issues, Chelsea.

    For the script: Tighten the soft/throwaway lede: “Three hours after tying the know, the groom shot the bride.” Then offer some specifics, and Laurettes condition. Then go to the re-telling of the incident.
