DEERFIELD, N.Y. -- A fundraising effort is underway for the man who shot and killed two alleged intruders in what state police are calling an attempted burglary in Deerfield.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for Ronald Stolarczyk with a goal of raising $10,000 for legal fees.

According to the page, all money raised will be used to hire a legal defense team versed in the second amendment laws of our country.

So far, more than $500 has been raised.

Suspected intruders, Patricia Anne Talerico, age 57, and her nephew, 27-year-old Nicholas Talerico, were killed in the incident. 

Stolarczyk used his deceased father's gun in the shooting, which was not re-registered in his name, according to officials. He was charged with criminal possession of a firearm and is currently being held in the Oneida County Jail pending an appearance in Deerfield Town Court on Monday night.
