Police responded to the home just before 10 p.m. on Tuesday after a woman called 911 to report that her boyfriend had shot her children.

When officers arrived, 15-year-old Della Jette and 16-year-old Sterling Jette Jr. were found with life-threatening injuries, the Watertown Police Department said in a news release. They died at the hospital.

The boyfriend, identified as Paul W. Ferguson, 42, was pronounced dead at the home from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to police. The mother was at home when the shootings occurred and was not injured.

“It became a little bit loud,” Gavallas said. “Ferguson was downstairs with the son watching TV. He came up and told the daughter to quiet down and not talk to her mother that way. They had a bit of a dust-up back and forth.”

Gavallas said Ferguson went into a bedroom, got a gun and shot Sterling in the leg when the teen came upstairs to confront him. Della went out onto a deck and the mother ran downstairs to call for help.

Ferguson followed Della out onto the deck and shot her in the chest before coming back inside and shooting Sterling in the chest, the chief said.

Police Investigation Reports

Police said Ferguson, a convicted felon, then closed himself in a bedroom and apparently shot himself. Because of his criminal background, he would not have been allowed to possess a firearm, according to police.
Along with Waterbury police, the Chief Medical Examiner’s Office is investigating.
Ferguson had been dating the victims’ mother for roughly two years, police said.
