BREAKING NEWS: Sheriff's Office probes early-morning shooting near Wellston
Investigators from the Jackson County Sheriff's Office still have many questions to answer in the aftermath of an early-morning shooting Monday at a Wellston area residence.

Jackson County Sheriff John Shasteen reports deputies were called at 2:40 a.m. by Sandra Neece to a residence at 4004 Mulga Road near Wellston. Two male suspects reportedly forced their way into the house and one of them shot Richard Kuehnert three times in the stomach area. Personnel from the Jackson Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol and Jackson County EMS also responded to the scene.

The sheriff said Kuehnert did not live at the residence, but was staying there. His home address was not available. He was flown by medical helicopter to a Columbus hospital and reportedly will survive his wounds.

What isn't known at this point is who the intruders were, why they came to the house and why they shot Kuehnert.

Article comment by: Laura Nash

The girl that identified herself in the above article is not Sandra Neece but Sandra Nash that is from Marion County Florida and has a warrant issued for her arrest. Sandra and her boyfriend Michael Farleigh are involved in prescription drug trafficking and from what I hear that was the cause of the shooting. There is an elderly man named Gary Nash who is my father and lives there and I believe does not belong in that situation. DCF has been trying to locate Mr. Nash until the shooting occurred and your article was posted on Sandra's Myspace no one knew the whereabouts of him.
