Family, Friends Say Goodbye To Shooting Victim
KINGSTON — It was the final chapter for a shooting victim killed outside a bar in Plymouth over the weekend.
Police described Scott Luzetsky as an innocent bystander and Wednesday night, he was laid to rest.
A steady stream of mourners filed into the Kopicki Funeral Home in Kingston to pay respects to Scott Luzetsky.
Luzetsky`s family says Scott, known as “Scooter” was an innocent bystander in the gunfire over the weekend that left him dead and the shooter and a second victim in critical condition at the hospital.
Scott`s sister Lynn says they were only 15 months apart and were more like twins.
“We go swimming, fishing, hunting, camping together. We had the same friends, we all grew up together,” said Lynn Luzetsky.
Luzetsky was found shot to death outside Bonnie`s Bar early Sunday morning.
Police say the shooter, William Allabaugh, was at the bar, making racial and homophobic slurs when the bartender asked him to leave.
According to court papers, witnesses at Bonnie`s Bar heard a ‘pop’ and that`s when bar patron Stephen Hollman, who is black, was shot in the head.
Witnesses told investigators that Allabaugh left the bar and they heard more gunshots outside.
Witnesses then said another bar patron went outside in search of Allabaugh.
That man told police Allabaugh pointed his gun at him, so he grabbed his own gun and shot Allabaugh.
For people in Plymouth, they say crime here in getting out of hand.
“It`s kind of scary. I do a lot of walking on my days off so, it`s kind scary,” said Tony Bomenka, who lives near Bonnie’s Bar.
Allabaugh was arraigned at the hospital Wednesday afternoon on charges of criminal homicide and attempted criminal homicide.
Lynn Luzetsky has a message for Allabaugh.
“I hope he lives because I`m going to be there at every hearing.”
Investigators say the man who shot Allabaugh has a permit to carry a concealed weapon and will not face charges.
