Dallas, TX -- An elderly man in Texas has been accused of shooting his two upstairs neighbors to death after a year of noise and dog feces complaints.
Police say that on Monday morning, 75-year-old Chung Kim shot 31-year-old Michelle Jackson after she walked out onto the balcony of her Sable Ridge condominium. Kim then went upstairs to her apartment and shot her boyfriend, 31-year-old Jamie Stafford.
When Stafford ran through the back patio door and jumped to the ground, Kim stepped onto the back balcony, leaned over, and shot Stafford again. In all, neighbors reporting hearing eight gunshots.
“I heard three [gunshots], then it stopped and I was about to rise up on the floor, and I heard five more and I got back on the floor,” said neighbor Yolanda Washington.
Kim drive away from the scene but was arrested nearby and then transported to the hospital for an undisclosed medical condition. He is facing two charges of capitol murder.
Jackson was a mother of five children, four of which were at school at the time of the shootings. A newborn was in the apartment at the time but was not harmed. All of the children have been sent to stay with relatives. The dog, Selena, will be adopted by a resident at the complex.
According to people who live int he area, Kim has been in a year long feud with Jackson regarding noise from her upstairs apartment and the fact that shit and piss from a pit bull the couple kept on their balcony would drip down on Kim’s patio.
“He got frustrated because he didn’t get the cooperation of the board and management to enforce the rules and regulations,” said one resident.
