UPDATE: Neighbors’ Deer-Feeding Feud Turns Fatal In New Brighton
NEW BRIGHTON - (AP) Police in a Twin Cities suburb say an ongoing dispute between neighbors over deer feeding has ended with a fatal shooting.
New Brighton Police Chief Bob Jacobson says the suspect, a 57-year-old man, had objected to his neighbors feeding deer.
Officers were called to a home in New Brighton about 8:30 p.m. Monday and found a man fatally shot and his girlfriend wounded. She was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center. Her condition is not known, but Jacobson says she is expected to survive.
A neighbor who lives across the street called police shortly after the shootings to turn himself in.
Jacobson says police recovered a 12-gauge shotgun from the suspect's house.
The police chief expects charges to be filed before noon Wednesday.
