A 78-year-old Florida man has been arrested after authorites stated he shot and killed his neighbor for trimming timber over their shared property line.
Edward Druzolowski, from DeLeon Springs, was booked into the Volusia County Jail Sunday night time on a cost of second-degree homicide within the deadly taking pictures of 42-year-old Brian Ford.
Ford was trimming tree limbs alongside the fence line between 1880 and 1890 Alameda Drive when Druzolowski confronted him about being on his property, the sheriff’s workplace said.
“Druzolowski advised detectives he threatened to shoot Ford, and when Ford didn’t go away, he shot him,” officers said.
Deputies who responded to the scene of the taking pictures after receiving two 911 calls after 7 p.m. Sunday tried to revive Ford, earlier than paramedics arrived and took over the life-saving efforts.
The sufferer couldn’t be saved and died on the spot, the sheriff’s workplace reported.
Druzolowski was being held with out bond pending his preliminary courtroom look set for Monday afternoon.
A cost of second-degree homicide in Florida is punishable by a minimal of 16 and a half years and a most of life in jail.
It’s unclear if Druzolowski would invoke Florida’s “Stand Your Floor” regulation, which justifies using deadly drive in self-defense.
