A U.S. man shot and killed the TV host of "A Rifleman's Journal," Gregory G. Rodriguez, on Friday. Police reports indicate that 41-year-old Wayne Bengston is the man who killed the TV host. Bengston reportedly found Rodriguez visiting his wife and his wife's mother. Bengston, upon finding Rodriguez at his mother-in-law's house, proceeded to shoot and kill the TV host. Bengston then assaulted his wife and grabbed his 2-year-old son. The man who killed the TV host dropped his son off at a relative's house, and drove about 25 miles away to his home. He killed himself at the home.
The man killed the popular TV host in Whitefish, Montana, an otherwise tranquil community known for its outdoor activities and beautiful scenery. Unfortunately for people living in Whitefish, on this particular day, the community was shaken to the core.
"Flathead County deputies went to his home and found his truck parked in the driveway. The SWAT team also responded and attempted to contact Bengtson, but had no success. Bengtson was found early Friday morning dead inside the home," reports Flathead Newsgroup, a local publication.
"Dial said the nature of the relationship between Rodriguez and the woman appeared to be business related. Bengtson's wife told police she and Bengtson had been having arguments, but nothing that would indicate violence. They were not estranged, according to Dial," the Flathead Newsgroup adds.
