Today at around 2:40pm police received a call that someone was shooting at their neighbors on HWY 465 west. Several police arrived on the scene near Sparta.

We were told that this was not a shoot-out. New neighbors moved in about two weeks ago and disliked the fact that the people next door to them (Ronnie) let their dogs run loose on their own six acres of land. One neighbor stated that the new neighbor had said something along the lines of “the next time those dogs come in my yard, I will have a little something for them.” One of the alleged perpetrator’s dogs was later found dead (it was shot) and another came home one day with a bullet-hole in it’s jaw. The resident then took his own gun and shot a couple rounds outside just to show the neighbor that he had a gun also. This resident claims that he was not shooting at the neighbor but that he was angry that the new neighbors would shoot at his dogs, killing one and purposefully intending to kill the other, instead of confronting him about the issue. The remaining dog has been taken to the vet and they are not sure if he will make it because the gun ripped a rather large hole in it’s jaw and has caused a very bad infection.
