Lenoir, North Carolina.–There are bad neighbors…then there are bad neighbors. You know the type…everyone has had one at one point or another in their life. Roland Younce falls into the bad neighbor category. Well, he used to, anyway. Now, because of a hair trigger temper and a long standing feud over a dog, Younce is dead after a shoot-out with the cops.

Long Standing Feud Between Neighbors Ends Badly

Roland Younce

The feud between Younce and his neighbor, Tony Moore, began brewing in January 2008 when Younce’s pit bull took a chunk out of Moore’s young daughters…Moore sued Younce for $1,900 for the medical bills incurred. Over the next 18 months, police responded to disturbance calls from the Moore and Younce residences on at least 26 different occasions. The whole nasty thing came to a head last Wednesday.

Moore called 911 asking for a deputy’s assistance. “My neighbor’s pit bull was over here on my front porch growling at me – he run my cat off and all, and I shot him. And the neighbor threatened to kill me,” said Moore. “You need to get somebody down here because I’m sitting here with my gun right now. They better get here quick because I’ll shoot him, too.” Just moments later, Younce was on the phone with 911 dispatchers as well. “The neighbor next door said he just shot my *bleep* dog.” The operator asked why his neighbor had shot the dog and Younce answered, “He did it just for the *bleep* spite of it, man.” The dispatcher assured Younce that a deputy was on the way. “You’d better get him out here fast before I kill this *bleep*.”

An officer arrived at Moore’s house first. Unbeknownst to him, Younce was hiding in the woods, lying in wait. While on the porch, talking with Moore and his two young daughters, ages 9 and 8, shots rang out. Deputy Marty Robbins was hit with shotgun pellets in his chest, arm, and leg. Moore, who is confined to a wheelchair, was pelted with buckshot in the shoulder, back, and hip. Moore’s youngest daughter, 8-year-old Ashley Moore, was shot in the back. All four were able to scramble to the safety of the house and await backup. Platoon leader Sgt. Tom McManus arrived with extra officers and attempted to get the wounded out of the house for medical treatment. Another shot, and McManus was hit in the left forearm. At that point, deputies returned fire in the direction where Younce was hiding. Several hours later, the body of Younce was found, dead from a gunshot wound. Officers do not believe the shot was self-inflicted.

Both deputies were treated and released the next day. Tony and Ashley Moore remain hospitalized in serious condition. Check out the source link for the dirty details on the year long feud between the pair and to listen to the 911 recordings. Crazy shit people…absotively crazy.

    I have an inside source who knew both people in this situation.  Younce was CRAZY and from what I was told the feud actually started years ago over the land Moore lived on.  From what I was told Younce sold it to Moore and after Moore built his house and was moving in Younce wanted it back and that caused the strained relations to continue to mount.  The dog was the main focus of the feud.  Younce tried to say Moore’s Chiuaha (?) bit him but the evidence showed the bite and wounds were not consistent with a small dog.    Either way, you don’t let your dog bother others.  Period.  What a stupid reason for anyone to die or get wounded.  Also, the poor dog….sad….they can’t pick who owns THEM.  I am glad Moore and his children will be alright as well as the deputies!

    What a crazy bastard, he was hiding in the bushes/woods/whatever and he shot at a cop trying to difuse the situation.  Then he hit a small child and a man in a wheelchair?  I’d shoot his damn dog too if it bit my daughter.  I love animals, but I agree with Sarabei, don’t let your dog bother others.

  • sarabei

    I mean if the crazy bastard loved that dog so much why was it running loose terrorizing the neighbors??

    Man. I’ve got a neighbor (up the block) who can’t keep his dog in his fucking yard. A few days ago, the chocolate lab mix came trotting down into our yard, brazenly stealing one of my dog’s more expensive balls (it’s glow-in-the-dark). I wasn’t there at the time, but Mike was, and after trying to get the little shit to drop the ball, he had to follow the dog all the way home to get the ball back. The dog’s owner was outside, so Mike asked him, “Is this your dog?” The guy said yes and Mike said, “he stole that ball from our yard.” While the owner wrangled the ball from the dog to give it back, he laughed and said, “that’s how I got ‘em trained…”

    Problem is, it’s not funny. Not to me, anyway. Just a couple of days ago, Elke and I were outside when I heard some commotion, like dogs fighting. Sure enough, that fucking brown dog had come down and had gotten into it with Elke. I managed to separate them and chase the other dog off, but fuck! The dog shits in my yard, steals our toys and antagonizes Elke. I made Mike show me where the people live, yesterday. If that fucking mutt shows up again – and it will – I’m going up there to lay into the owner who thinks it’s all some joke.

    I promise to leave my shotgun at home, though.

    my question… if guns were an issue why allow your kids outside? seriously don’t you think Mr. Moore would have told his daughters to go inside the home (keep away from the windows?) just my thought

    I agree, it is never funny.  It amazes me how people think it is OK and funny when their animals or children bug their neighbors etc.  I would be LIVID too, why can’t people or better yet WON’T people control their pets??  If you love them so much, you will protect them and not let them become a nuisance.

    Possibly he didn’t think it would really come to that?  People tend to think stuff like this will never really happen to them…sadly they are wrong.

    The part that amazed me the most was Moore (and his daughters) were on the front porch with LE when nasty neighbor started shooting. I can only guess that Moore thought since LE was there, his daughters would be safe. Personally, I would have made the girls stay inside, but after watching the video and comments from the local (neighbors?), apparently (and sadly), this was just another evening in this area.

    I totally agree.  My best friend had a couple of close calls with a loose pit bull in her dad’s neighborhood, and then found out that the dog had chased some little kids who barely made it back into the house.  The owners couldn’t have cared less.  She swore if it happened again, she was going to throw a poisoned steak into these people’s backyard when she knew the dog was actually there.  I am an animal lover myself, and it’s sad the dog has to pay for his owner’s negligence, but once a dog has become a threat, especially to children, it needs to go.  Another thing I hate is when people allow their dogs to jump all over guests, thinking it’s hi-fucking-larious and just so “cute.”  Train your fucking dogs and keep them on a leash when they are outside, people!

    In this case, I’m just glad this crazy old fucker is the only one who ended up dead. I hope the dad and daughter completely recover.

    I had a similar experience this past weekend. Well actually my 15 year old had the experience. He was walking our puppy, when a pitt bull jumped over his fence, and tried to bite our dog in the neck. It didn’t do any harm to our dog, thank God cause of bystanders. But this is a common pratice for that dog, and one day it will be a child who is biten.

    Geesh….

  • Lavonna

    Here in town where I live it is a law that your dog must be chained up, they can not walk the streets but there are about 4 little dogs that run up and down my street, but if they come in my yard I yell at them to go on but I dont’ call the dog warden on them. If I did they would haul them off and then who will care for them?
     
    When I let my German Shepherd out to use the bathroom I always put him on a chain, he is aggressive and I couldn’t stand the thought of him biting a child or someone shooting him.
    He broke 3 collars in 6 months so I always have to check to make sure he’s not broke it because the last time he got he broke his collar (he takes off running as soon as he hears the chain lock and when he gets off the porch the chain get tight and the collar breaks)he went across the road and the people over there start gathering up their little dogs, I heard granny bitch  tell one of them ‘go get my gun’ and I said ‘you shoot my dog and me or you one is going to pack an ass whipping” she just looked at me so I snuck up on him while he was pissing on her tires LOL and took him home.

    Hi Sarabei, i’m working on a documentary tv program about this at the moment (4 years on) I
    was wondering if you have any contact information for the people
    involved, neighbors, friends, acquaintances, those who knew the
    families, or could pass on my email to them – its hannahjames36@yahoo.com-
    thanks.

  • Daughter

    Evidently you don’t have an inside source from both people in the situation…because you haven’t talked with anyone I know on the Younce side of the story!

  • Daughter

    We got your email and will be in touch…

  • LeaveMeBe

    Two things: This story is almost 5 years old. I doubt you will get a response from this poster. And did you consider that maybe this poster talked to someone on the Younce side of the family you *don’t* know? Jus’ sayin’.

  • tony hunt

    I don’t know the whole story, but the tv show clearly showed that when the kids went next door to retrieve some movies with Roland’s daughter they were told not to enter the house, but the hard-headed kids opened the door anyway, and the dog did what dogs are supposed to do (protect their owners). It appears that this was the beginning of the feud. Cats can climb trees, dogs can’t, close the doors call the cops and the owner, and everything is ok. Kill my dog under the circumstances BITCH and I will not be the only to DIE!!
