Kentucky State Police Investigates Two Deadly Shooting Incidents in Russell County

JAMESTOWN, Ky. (May 4, 2024) – The Kentucky State Police (KSP) is investigating two deadly shootings that occurred Friday evening in Russell County. 

On May 3, 2024 at approximately 7:00 P.M. CST, KSP Post 15 received a call from Pulaski County 911 requesting assistance locating a Ford F150 believed to be operated by Angela Gosser, age 56 of Russell Springs.  Troopers responded to the Russell County to attempt to locate the vehicle.  At approximately 7:24 P.M. CST, Russell County 911 contacted KSP Post 15 and requested investigative assistance with a deadly shooting incident that had occurred at a residence on South KY 619 in Russell County.

The preliminary investigation revealed that Angela Gosser had arrived at a residence on South KY 619 belonging to her brother, Darryl Wilson, age 58 of Jamestown.  Once at the residence, Ms. Gosser armed herself with a firearm and forced entry into the residence.  Upon Ms. Gosser entering the residence, there was an apparent exchange of gunfire between Ms. Gosser and Mr. Wilson with both individuals receiving gunshot wounds.  Mr. Wilson was transported to the University of Kentucky Hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries.  Ms. Gosser injuries were fatal and she was pronounced deceased by the Russell County Coroner.

While at the scene on South KY 619, KSP received a request for a welfare check on Angela Gosser’s sister, Jennifer Wilson, age 57 of Russell Springs.  Family members of Ms. Wilson reported they had been unable to make contact with her, causing them to become concerned for her safety.  KSP Troopers and Russell County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to Hammond Road in Russell County.  Troopers and Deputies located a Toyota Camry partially off the roadway when they arrived on Hammond Road.  Upon contact with the vehicle, a lone occupant, Jennifer Wilson, was located in the driver’s seat with apparent fatal gunshot wounds to the head.  The preliminary investigation revealed that before the incident at her brother’s residence on South KY 619, Ms. Gosser encountered Ms. Wilson on Hammond Road.  Ms. Gosser armed herself with a firearm and fired multiple rounds into the passenger area of the vehicle, fatally striking Ms. Wilson.  Ms. Wilson was pronounced deceased by the Russell County Coroner. 

KSP was assisted at the scene by the Russell County Sheriff’s Office, Jamestown Police Department, Russell County EMS, and the Russell County Coroner’s Office. The investigation is ongoing by Detective James Ford.
