Paul Ham and his son, Jimmy, entered a mobile home on their property
to repair a water leak for tenant Kevin Clark. As they walked in,
the Hams encountered a couple staying with Clark, William and
Kristina Tuell. William Tuell immediately began shooting at the
Hams, hitting the elder Ham in the head and shooting Jimmy Ham in
the face. Both Hams then ran for their house, with Tuell and his
wife on their heels. The attack continued in the Hams' home as Tuell
and his wife attempted to shoot the entire Ham family. Kristina
Tuell was wrestled to the ground by Ham's daughter, Sherry, but
managed to escape. Though wounded, Jimmy Ham finally managed to
secure a gun and kill Tuell with one shot. Kristina Tuell was later
arrested after a massive manhunt and faces multiple charges,
including attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon.
