Sheriff: 2 dead in Warren County murder-suicide


Johnsburg, NY (WRGB) – The Warren County Sheriff's is investigating a shooting that left two people dead.

Investigators tell us it happened around 3 pm Wednesday afternoon at a home on South Johnsburg Road in the town of Johnsburg.

The Sheriff's Office tells us they acted on a 911 call from a man who said he had just shot and killed his brother and was prepared to end his own life.

When law enforcement arrived on scene they found the body of 71-year-old Dennis Puglisi who had been shot in the head, and 76-year-old George Puglisi who was unconscious.

The older Puglisi was flown to Albany Medical Center where he later died.

Investigators say the motive appears to be a personal dispute between the two brothers.
