Dublin police identify man killed in apparent self-defense shooting

38-year-old Kenneth Krainski named as decedent in domestic dispute that turned deadly

Dublin Police Services has named Kenneth Krainski, 38, as the decedent in a domestic disturbance in Dublin last month that escalated into his shooting death, with police continuing to believe that the shooting was in self-defense.

Police described the Nov. 20 altercation at SoFi apartments in Dublin as stemming from a domestic dispute involving a woman and her estranged husband -- now identified as Krainski -- that resulted in a second man shooting and killing Krainski in what Dublin police believed to be self defense, based on the initial investigation findings and eyewitness testimony.

"The investigation is ongoing and will be forwarded to the District Attorney's Office for final disposition," DPS officials wrote in an updated statement on Nov. 29.

Identities of the woman who lived in the apartment and the shooter were still not made public as of Dec. 1, but police said the two were acquaintances.
