Triple shooting, 2 dead near Leander

Posted: Updated:

The Williamson County Sheriff's Office is investigating a triple shooting that left two dead and one injured near Leander, early Sunday morning. Detectives say the shooting took place just after 12:30 a.m. in the 600 block of Kathleen Lane.
When deputies arrived on scene they discovered the resident, 45-year old Forest Tervin, had been shot twice. He was transported to a local hospital with two non-life threatening gunshot wounds. When investigators walked inside they found the body of Tervin's wife, 40-year old Kimberly Tervin and the body of a neighbor, 45-year old Ronald Berry. Both were pronounced dead at the scene from apparent gunshot wounds.
Detectives believe sometime earlier in the evening Berry came to the home and had a verbal disagreement with his neighbors that eventually turned physical. Detectives say Berry left the Tervin's home and went back to his own home down the street to retrieve a handgun. He returned to the Tervin's and forced his way in. Investigators tell FOX 7 they are still trying to determine who is responsible for the multiple shots fired in the home.
An 18-year old son was home at the time. Deputies say he was able to escape without injury.
