One irritated argument allegedly sparked a murderous rage for an electrician in Florida who fatally hit three coworkers. The fuse for the scary spree was once allegedly lit on Friday when Shaun Runyon, 39, argued with his boss at a job site. Bay News, citing the authorities, said he slugged the boss before running.
Electrician Kills Three Coworkers After Argument With Boss
Runyon worked as an electrician for a Pennsylvania-based business enterprise to help build a new grocery store in Davenport, Florida. He shared a home with colleagues at the time, police said.
Runyon got angry at some stage in an incident at about 2 a.m. on Friday, punched his supervisor, and fled the workplace. After he hit his boss and ran, Runyon went to the residence where he was once staying — and began killing, the Polk County Sheriff said.

Witnesses called 911 to report a murder incident on Saturday at 9:44 a.m., Law & Crime (via MSN News) said. Runyon allegedly used a baseball bat and a knife. Sheriff Grady Judd stated Saturday in a press conference that the suspect beat one person to loss of life as they slept.
Another victim was once located lifeless on the porch, per Judd. A third seriously wounded person died later Saturday, police said.
Runyon allegedly chased the fourth victim outside, striking him on the shoulder and lower back with the bat. This person survived, however. Another man, his wife, and his 7-year-old daughter also escaped the home except harm, Judd said.
“He stabbed and beat people inside the residence,” said Judd. He added there were seven people inside at the time.
Electrician Claimed He Was Raped
Runyon fled. But authorities caught him when he gave up in bloody garments about two hours after the killings. He told other people in a Lake Wells home he’d been raped, Judd said. The humans entreated Runyon to go to the hospital, the place police arrested him.
Runyon, who knew each individual in the home where the beatings began, allegedly confessed, police said.
“We have no idea what outraged him so bad that more than 24 hours later that he would come back and make an attempt to kill every one of them,” Judd said.
