Police say a 75-year-old man in Dallas is being charged with Capital Murder after he allegedly shot and killed two neighbors because they had dumped dog feces on his porch.
According to The Dallas Morning News, Chung Kim had repeatedly complained to management at Sable Ridge Apartments that Michelle Jackson and Jamie Stafford, who lived above him, had dumped dog feces on his porch and allowed their dog, Selena, to urinate on the upstairs balcony which dripped down to his patio.
Tension finally boiled over on Monday when Kim was on his patio and shot 31-year-old Jackson multiple times as she stood on the patio above him, police said. He then reportedly went upstairs and shot Stafford, who was also 31, as he was trying to escape. After Stafford fell from the second floor, Kim is accused of going back downstairs and shooting him again.
“I heard about eight or nine gunshots just go off, ‘Bow, bow, bow,’ like three separate times,” resident Michael Issa told KXAS. “It was like, first there was two or three, then there was a pause for like 30 or 40 seconds and then there was another three or four shots, and there was a pause, and a couple more shots.”
“I waited for like three or four minutes and I ain’t hear nothing. I came outside to smoke a cigarette and look upstairs and there’s feet hanging over my head,” he recalled.
Resident Yoland Washington said that three of the couple’s children were away from home at the time of the shooting, but an infant had been in the apartment.
“When they come home today, their mother and their father is gone,” Washington lamented. “Little baby — they call the newborn Little Mama — Little Mama is not going to never know her parents. She’ll never know her parents. Never.”
Neighbors told the Morning News that Jackson had volunteered about 30 hours a week for AmeriCorps VISTA, helping to combat poverty. She also tutored disadvantaged children through the nonprofit Dallas Community Lighthouse.
Local AmeriCorps director Keven Vicknair said that Jackson had been going to school for a degree in education.
“She was really happy she was going back to school,” he explained. “It’s insane that this happened to her [when] everything was looking up. She was great.”
Child Protective Services took temporary custody of the 1-month-old child, but all of the children are now staying with relatives. The couple’s dog is being adopted by a neighbor.

‘The world is on fire!’ Fox News pundit stunned after Trump decides to host G7 at his golf club
Fox News politics editor Chris Stirewalt was stunned by the White House decision to host next year's G7 summit at a property owned by President Donald Trump.
White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney announced the international gathering would be held at Trump's struggling Doral golf course in Florida, and even the conservative Stirewalt couldn't believe the decision.
"The idea that this administration, dealing with what this administration is dealing with, right? A lot -- the unraveling in Syria, you’ve got the march to impeachment here at home, breaking news story every day. The world is on fire. Why?"
‘This has become the catch-us-if-you-can administration’ after Mulvaney blows off corruption: CNN’s Jim Acosta
On Thursday, White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney dismissed concerns that the Trump administration had pressured the government of Ukraine to dig up information on political rivals.
"We do that all the time. Get over it," Mulvaney told reporters. "Politics is going to be involved in foreign policy--elections do have consequences."
CNN's Jim Acosta observed Thursday afternoon that corruption has just become the norm for Trump and his aides.
"I think that's probably a pretty remarkable admission coming from the acting Chief of Staff," Acosta said.
"You could almost read between the lines here where the acting Chief of Staff was almost saying to everybody in the room here, 'Catch us if you can.'"
WATCH: Trump’s chief of staff pummeled in rancorous press briefing after announcing G7 decision
President Donald Trump's chief of staff and Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney was pummeled by reporters demanding answers about the president scoring huge sums of taxpayer dollars by having a G7 summit at his Miami resort.
Mulvaney held a press conference on Thursday where he announced that the G7 meeting would be at Trump National Doral Miami in 2020. Reporters responded with many questions about self-dealing and the president's profits off of the event.
