‘I Don't Have Anybody Now': Shooting Kills Two at Montgomery County Apartment Complex

One victim's sister spoke out, pleading for answers in her sister's killing.

Relatives of a woman shot to death overnight in Montgomery County are desperate for answers as police investigate the shooting, which also left a second person dead.

The deadly double shooting unfolded at the Forest Gardens Apartments on the 100 block of Forest Avenue in Ambler about midnight, NBC10's Matt DeLucia learned at the scene. Details were scarce in the hours after the shooting, and police remained at the scene investigating late into Monday morning.

Kimberly Trunk said her 54-year-old sister, Janice Trunk, was one of the victims in the shooting. She said her sister lived there seven years and had no problems there, as far as she knew.

Trunk stood waiting for answers outside the building as police and Montgomery County District Attorney's Office investigators cordoned off the area and searched for clues. Trunk said she couldn't imagine why anyone would harm her sister.

"Nobody deserves this. She didn't deserve this," Trunk said. "She went to work and took care of her son. That's it."

Trunk said she received a call about 2 a.m. that her sister had been killed -- but had not learned any additional information in the early morning hours Monday. A neighbor told NBC10 she heard about five gunshots in the complex just before midnight.

The second victim's identity was not released early Monday afternoon, and no arrests were announced. Police did not provide any details on the deadly shooting.

Trunk pleaded for help to find her sister's killer, saying if anyone heard anything or saw anything, they should come forward and tell police.

"She's my last relative, that's it," Trunk said. "I don't have anybody now."
