Shun Runyon Kills 2 Coworkers
Runyon and his coworkers lived in Davenport while they worked temporarily at a supermarket for a Pennsylvania electric company.
During a news conference, the 39-year-old got into an argument with his supervisor Friday, punching the man and fleeing the job site, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said.
He then returned to the house where he lived with seven coworkers and their family before attacking them with a knife and a baseball bat. Runyon beat one man to death while he slept, according to the sheriff.
A second victim was found dead on the front porch, and a third victim was beaten so severely he was hospitalized in extremely critical condition and was “not expected to survive,” the sheriff said.
Runyon chased a fourth person into the street, hitting him with the bat. Another manscaped unharmed with his wife and 7-year-old daughter, the AP reported.
After the incident, Runyon left home and led law enforcement on a large-scale search with deputies, K-9’s, drones, and a helicopter.
The sheriff said that Runyon also has a violent criminal history, including a violent arrest dealing with strangulation in Pennsylvania. A search of court records says Runyon was charged with strangulation in Nazareth in May. According to court records, he posted bail with a court hearing scheduled for Oct. 14. The court records, in that case, listed Runyon as having a Nazareth address.
He showed up at a Lake Wales couple and told them he had been raped.
The sheriff said charges would be forthcoming against Runyon, who was not injured. The identities of the victims were not immediately released.
“He knew all of these victims. We have no idea what outraged him so badly that more than 24 hours later, he would come back and make an attempt to kill every one of them,” Judd said.
