Woman Fatally Shot By Upstate NY Homeowner After Pulling Into Wrong Driveway

A 20-year-old woman was shot dead by an upstate New York homeowner Saturday night after the driver of the car she was riding in turned into the wrong driveway, authorities said.

Kaylin Gillis, from Saratoga County, was inside the vehicle with three pals when they made a wrong turn into a driveway while searching for a friend’s house in the town of Hebron, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office said.

As the driver of the car was leaving, Kevin Monahan, the owner of the home the group accidentally pulled into, allegedly fired two shots from his patio at the vehicle, authorities said.

Gillis was struck by one of the bullets. Monahan, 65, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, Sheriff Jeffrey Murphy said during a Monday press conference.

“This is a very sad case of some young adults who were looking for a friend’s house and ended up at this man’s house who decided to come out with a firearm and discharge it,” Murphy said.

After the gunshots rang out around 10 p.m., Gillis and the friends drove away until they could call for help in a neighboring town, Murphy said, noting the area lacks reliable cellphone service.

Gillis was pronounced dead when first responders reached the car. Monahan is being held in neighboring Warren County before he appears in a Washington County court at a later date.
