What drives friends to murder?

SHERBURNE – Police continue to investigate and follows leads into what caused a fatal fight between two friends in Sherburne over the weekend.

Kallin P. Richards, 24, New Berlin, was shot and killed by a friend, Joshua T. Story, 23, of 33 Classic St., early Saturday morning at Sherburne Meadows Apartments as he attempted to drive away in his 2000 Ford Explorer.



Sheriff Thomas Loughren said yesterday that Story made an oral confession to investigators.

“He admitted some things orally and verbally confessed to being the one to pull the trigger,” confirmed Lt. James E. Lloyd.

The deadly dispute between the two men may have originated over Story questioning whether Richards was sober enough to drive home, said police.

“It was part of it. There were certainly other things. These two men obviously knew each other, and their confrontation was emotional as much as it was anything else and they lost their temper. It’s a thing we’ve seen before; it’s drinking and a gun being too accessible. If there was no gun available that night, then this call would have most likely been the routine weekend fight,” said Lloyd.

The blood alcohol test results for Story and Richards have not yet been released. Story’s gun is legally owned and was removed by investigators following a search of his apartment.
