Neighbors Who Turned Deadly

A Utah man allegedly shot and killed two neighbors after an argument Tuesday, and was naked when police arrested him.

Kennedy Lund, 23, has been booked on two counts of murder for the deaths of Chasidy Gerber, 37, and Martin Barron, 33. Gerber and Barron had been staying in a trailer behind Lund's home, with an unidentified man.

"Reports indicate that the man who lives in the trailer was outside with his children when Mr. Lund, who was not clothed and was carrying a gun, approached the trailer," a West Valley Police statement released on Twitter said. "The man inquired what was happening and took his children inside the trailer." 

Gerber and Barron then went outside and were killed, police said. According to witnesses, there was no exchange between Lund and the pair before the shots were fired.

West Valley City police were called to a house a house Tuesday night at about 7:15 p.m. after a report that someone was shooting a gun. When they arrived, officers found a man standing in the street. That man, according to The Salt Lake Tribune, was related to the suspect and had taken the gun away from Lund.

Lund then reportedly came outside, still naked, and was taken away by police.

Details about the argument before the shooting are unknown.

Roxeanne Vainuku, a West Valley City police spokeswoman, told formal charges will be determined in the next few days by the Salt Lake County district attorney.
