SACRAMENTO, CA (AP) - A 73-year-old gunman entangled in a love triangle shot and killed the treasurer of a Sacramento remote-controlled airplane club, who police said was having an affair with the estranged wife of the attacker.

Before turning the gun on himself Tuesday, Robert Gully chased the woman from a parking lot into the lobby of a building where the club was meeting.

Sacramento police Sgt. Andrew Pettit said Gully fired multiple times but failed to hit her. Police said Gully and 62-year-old Jerome Votaw of Sacramento were both romantically involved with the 49-year-old woman, whose name was not released.

All three were members of the model airplane club.

Leaders of the 200-member Sacramento Area Modelers club declined to comment on the shooting. Members of the club fly large, radio-controlled model airplanes.
