Sponsored by:

Stanislaus County Sheriff€™s Detectives are investigating the homicide of an Empire man who was killed in a gunfight during what appeared to be a botched robbery attempt early Tuesday morning.

Deputies responded to a home in the 2000 block of Church Street at 1:30 a.m., after receiving a 911 call from the man€™s girlfriend who also lives at the residence.

Deputies discovered the body of William Wayne Lederle, 45, in his bedroom dead from a gunshot wound to the upper body. “It appears that there was a gunfight between Lederle and at least two other suspects,” said Detective Ed Campbell. “There were several shots fired by both Lederle and the suspects.”
